A Street Census is a survey conducted over a 24-hour period to gather information about the extent and nature of homelessness in Winnipeg. Although some cities call these projects “Point in Time Counts” of homelessness, we have chosen the term Street Census because the project will involve more than simply counting people.

The survey will provide a ‘snapshot’ of our overall homeless population and provides data on how this population changes over time.
