Everyone Counts 2020-2022, the Third Nationally Coordinated Point-in-Time Counts (PiT) of homelessness in Canada took place between March 2020 and December 2022.

A total of 87 communities and regions implemented PiT Counts during this period and contributed their survey data to the national picture. This report incorporates data collected from across these communities, including counts that took place during pre-pandemic, mid-pandemic, and late-pandemic periods.
