'Everyone Counts' in New Brunswick: Highlights from the 2018 Point-in-Time Count

This report highlights New Brunswick findings from the national 2018 Point-in-Time (PiT) Count, “Everyone Counts”. The count, which took place in Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John, and Bathurst, occurred on March 15th, 2018. This was the second nationally coordinated PiT Count under the Government of Canada’s Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS). The first, conducted in 2016, included 32 cities nationwide. In 2018, this expanded to more than 60 cities. In New Brunswick, counts were planned in close consultation with the cities' Community Advisory Boards on Homelessness (CABs), and the four cities worked in partnership to ensure consistency across the region. The findings presented in this report, based on surveys conducted with 269 people, include basic demographic information, common reasons for housing loss, and most needed social services. Beyond the highlights presented here, the data gathered through this project offers the opportunity for greater analysis in the months and years to come.
