Bulletin Subject: Release of the City of London's 2018 Enumeration Results
The information contained in this bulletin may be helpful to you in your work with individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
London has released the results of its Counting Our Way Home 2018 community enumeration event.
Enumeration events assist the City of London, the Province of Ontario, the Government of Canada, and the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness to have a stronger understanding of homelessness and are an essential part of our response to homelessness. Each year the City of London contributes its results to the Government of Canada's Homelessness Partnering Strategy Coordinated Point-in-Time Count, the Province of Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing Services, and the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness 20,000 Homes Campaign.
Please see the full report for additional findings from London's 2018 community enumeration event.
Enumeration events are community events that engage Londoners to solve homelessness together. This year's event involved 73 community volunteers and 20 team leaders from homeless serving agencies who surveyed 406 individuals and families experiencing homelessness in 15 locations throughout London. Thank you to all individuals, families, volunteers, and organizations involved in London's 2018 community event.
