Metro Vancouver Homeless Count Assessment 2010

The Metro Vancouver Homeless Count (MVHC) has been a triennial community-based research project that was conducted in 2002, 2005, and 2008. The three MVHC were united by the same twenty four hour point-intime methodology and a common purpose to:

• enumerate homeless persons by municipality in Metro Vancouver;

• create demographic profiles of those enumerated on the day of the count; and,

• identify trends related to each homeless count (especially the 2008 count). 

The MVHC Assessment was designed to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of the MVHC and identify strategies that could improve the MVHC in the future. As such, the purpose of the MVHC Assessment is to examine the efficacy of the MVHC from a methodological and implementation perspective.
