Street Census

The Winnipeg Street Census was conducted in Winnipeg on October 25/26th. Almost 300 volunteers met with a huge variety of people living in emergency shelters, temporarily with friends and relatives, under bridges and at other temporary spaces. The research project is a ‘moment in time’ study intended to gather information about the extent and nature of homelessness in Winnipeg. Despite its methodological limitations, it provides us with important demographic information to improve decision-making and inform strategies.
