2021 Point-in-Time (PiT) Count
Each year, the City of Kamloops, in association with many non-profit organizations, businesses, and individuals, participates in the Coordinated Point-in-Time (PiT) Count, supported by the Government of Canada's Reaching Home Strategy.
The 2021 Point-in-Time Count will take place on April 15 and 16, with COVID-19 precautions and regulations in place.
The PiT Count serves two functions: to count the number of people experiencing homelessness in Kamloops over a specified period; and to gather information on the demographics and service needs of the local homeless population.
The count is conducted over a 24-hour period beginning in the evening of Day 1 with a survey of those staying in emergency shelters, followed by a street count during the day on Day 2.
The Point-in-Time Count helps us to better understand homelessness in our city. With successive counts, we can measure our progress in ending homelessness in our community.
