The Winnipeg Street Census was conducted in October, 2015. Almost 300 volunteers met with people living in emergency shelters, temporarily with friends and relatives, under bridges and other temporary spaces. The Street Census contains numbers and statistics that policy makers and community leaders in Winnipeg use for decision-making. Behind each number are individuals who on a single night, and many previous nights, did not have a safe place they could call their home. They shared their stories and time in the hope that this information will lead to change. The Street Census will be updated in Spring of 2018.
