Description of Duties: The Street Census is Winnipeg's Point-in-Time Count: a survey used to gather info on homelessness by communities across Canada and around the world. The Street Census takes a one-day snapshot of homelessness. This contributes to a national picture, advances local knowledge, and helps identify service needs, so that policies and programs can be more effective in preventing and ending homelessness.
