Conducted in October, 2014 in Calgary, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Red Deer, the provincial count found 6,600 individuals experiencing homelessness in the province. Comparing communities who conducted counts at different times of the year in 2008 to the 2014 count, this represents a 16% reduction in homelessness. These figures do not include Medicine Hat and Red Deer as they did not conduct counts in 2008.
