Lethbridge 2022 Point-in-Time Count Results

The final results for the Lethbridge 2022 Point-in-Time (PiT) Count indicate at least 454 individuals experiencing homelessness on September 27, 2022.

The PiT Count provides a "snapshot" of homelessness in Lethbridge, and indicates the minimum number of people experiencing homelessness in our community.

"In 2018, the Lethbridge PiT count found 223 individuals experiencing homelessness," says Erin Mason, PiT Count Coordinator for the City of Lethbridge. "The 2022 count has found at least twice as many individuals experiencing homelessness with a large increase in those living rough and not accessing shelter resources. This demonstrates a great need for more affordable and supportive housing and services to support the system of care for vulnerable individuals."

Over the course of six hours, trained staff and volunteers counted and surveyed individuals who were staying in shelters, short-term housing and sleeping rough (without shelter) in Lethbridge. More than 75 volunteers assisted with the count.
