Jukin Media’s City Lab looked at the number of homeless in each Canadian city over a period of five years and ranked them by their number of people living in shelters, motels, shelters and other housing.
It also looked at how well those numbers were met and found that Calgary, Montreal and Vancouver had the highest number of residents in these shelter and motel environments.
Montreal had the most, followed by Toronto and Ottawa.
“There’s a lot of housing, and there’s a bit of a housing crisis, but it’s also a lot more affordable than it was,” said Chris Dyer, senior program manager with Juken Media.
“So people are trying to get into housing, which is a great thing.”
We know that homeless people are very vulnerable.
They are very isolated.
The survey found that while the homeless population in Montreal is smaller than in Vancouver, it is still quite high compared to the rest of Canada. “
They’re not getting the services that they need.”
The survey found that while the homeless population in Montreal is smaller than in Vancouver, it is still quite high compared to the rest of Canada.
More than half of homeless people surveyed in Montreal were in shelters or motels.
Only one in 10 in Vancouver had a shelter or motel situation.
The data also shows that the homeless are more likely to be single than the general population, as well as being less likely to have access to housing.
“The homeless population is also much more concentrated,” Dader said.
“It’s more concentrated in some parts of the country.
There are a lot fewer people who are homeless and the homeless populations are very concentrated in particular areas.”
It’s not just homeless that is experiencing homelessness in Canada, according to Dyer.
There is also a significant amount of alcohol and drug abuse in Canada.
“We know we’re going to have a large amount of homeless by the end of this decade,” he said.
