Homelessness in Delta

According to results of the Greater Vancouver 2023 Point-in-Time Homeless Count, homelessness in the Metro Vancouver region saw sharpest spike between counts since survey began (4,821 people, up 32% from 2020). The report shows Delta had 44 unhoused individuals, compared to 17 found in 2020. In 2023, 17 of Delta’s unhoused individuals were in some type of shelter (stayed in homeless shelters, including transition houses for women fleeing violence and youth safe houses, people with no fixed address (NFA) staying temporarily in hospitals, jails or detox facilities) and 27 were unsheltered individuals (outside or in makeshift accommodation, warming centres, vehicles or couch-surfing).
