The City of Grande Prairie conducts a city-wide Point-in-Time (PiT) Count of homelessness every two years in collaboration with Alberta’s 7 Cities Network on Housing and Homelessness. PiT Counts serve two important functions: they provide a current snapshot of the demographics and number of people experiencing homelessness in the city and enable us to examine changes in homelessness over time. By aligning Grande Prairie’s Count method with methods used across Alberta’s 7 Cities network, we can examine and address larger trends. Ultimately, this helps to support the goal of ending homelessness in our City and province. 

The next PiT Count takes place on April 11, 2018.

About Alberta’s 7 Cities Network
Working together to end homelessness since 2001, Alberta's 7 Cities Network on Housing and Homelessness is made up of the lead organizations responsible for the implementation of local Plans to End Homelessness. These cities include the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, Grande Prairie, Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. The seven cities coordinate local plans at a systems level and align funding resources for greater impact and progress towards ending homelessness.
