Homelessness survey in Pond Inlet

26 February 2018 

The Department of Family Services’ Poverty Reduction division will conduct a door-to-door survey in Pond Inlet, from February 27 to March 9, 2018, to better understand homelessness in the community.

A team will go to randomly selected houses and units to speak with people who permanently sleep in the dwelling, and with those who sleep there temporarily because they have no other place to go. Surveys will take approximately 20 minutes.

Information provided is confidential and anonymous, and will be used to help find community-based solutions to Nunavut’s housing crisis. Participants will be compensated for their time.

For more information, please contact Jennifer Jhingoor at 867-975-5252, Francine Doucet at 867-975-5210 or email hiddenhomelessness@gov.nu.ca.
