Cowichan Valley Regional District Summer Point-In-Time Homeless Count and Housing Needs Survey

The purpose of a Point-in-Time Count (PiT) is to obtain a snapshot of people who are absolutely homeless in a community during a set timeframe – usually limited to 24 hours to avoid counting some people twice. The summer 2017 homeless count took place in the Cowichan Valley Region on August 15 and 16 over a 24-hour period. Count sites were located in the Duncan-North Cowichan core area, Ladysmith, Chemainus, Lake Cowichan and Mill Bay. The Count was promoted under the heading of You Count! Count Yourself In. A Housing Needs survey was also undertaken with people who were experiencing Hidden Homelessness and people at risk of homelessness.
