The Council of Yukon First Nations and the Yukon Planning Group on Homelessness in association with the Homelessness Partnering Strategy conducted Whitehorse’s first ever Point-in-Time (PiT) Homeless Count in April of 2016.

The PiT Count provided a “snapshot” of homelessness in Whitehorse, Yukon.

The results of the PiT Count will be used to improve the response to homelessness in the territory.

In future, successive counts will be performed that will help us to measure progress towards our ultimate goal: ending homelessness in Whitehorse and across Canada.

The PiT count is part of a national initiative, the Government of Canada’s Homelessness Partnering Strategy funded by the Employment and Social Development of Canada.
