Point in Time Connection

On April 22nd and 23rd, 2018, in partnership with Hamilton’s Urban Indigenous community the City of Hamilton will be participating in the 2018 Point-In-Time Connection. The City will be one of 60 communities across Canada conducting surveys to better understand the needs of people experiencing homelessness. Information gathered from the Point in Time Connection will be used to match people experiencing homelessness with the right types of housing services and supports.

2016 Survey Results

263 volunteers and professional social service staff canvassed Hamilton’s urban, suburban and rural areas, emergency shelters, hospitals and community agencies. Together we surveyed 504 individuals experiencing homelessness. Hamilton’s count continues to support the efforts of the 20,000 Homes Campaign.

The count supports a national campaign led by the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness (CAEH) to house 20,000 of Canada’s most vulnerable people experiencing homelessness by July 1, 2018. Hamilton was one of the first cities in Canada to pilot 20,000 Homes.
