Point in Time Connection

On April 22 and 23, in partnership with Hamilton’s Urban Aboriginal community, the City of Hamilton joined more than 60 communities across Canada conducting surveys in 2018 to better understand the needs of people experiencing homelessness. Locally, the initiative was referred to as the Point in Time Connection.

2018 Survey Results

During the initiative, 235 volunteers and professional social service staff canvassed Hamilton’s urban, suburban and rural areas, emergency shelters, drop-in programs and community agencies. Together we surveyed 338 individuals and completed 48 family surveys. This initiative continues to support the efforts of the 20,000 Homes Campaign.

The Point in Time Connection continues to support a national campaign led by the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness to house 20,000 of Canada’s most vulnerable people experiencing homelessness by July 1, 2020. Hamilton was one of the first cities in Canada to pilot 20,000 Homes.
