Homeless Censuses

In April 2005, November 2005, July 2006, and September 2007, censuses of homeless individuals were undertaken in Nanaimo. Teams of volunteers canvassed homeless individuals in local shelter facilities, public spaces in the downtown core and the Old City Quarter, and selected outlying areas. Information was gathered on individuals' gender, age, ethnicity, observed health issues, family status, sources of income, and length of residency in Nanaimo. For the purposes of the censuses, homeless individuals were defined as those who did not have a permanent residence to which they could return whenever they chose.
