The final report of the 2017 Homeless Count confirms the preliminary results released in April, which found 3,605 were homeless in the region, with the largest populations in Vancouver (2,138), followed by Surrey (605) and Langley (206).

An increasing number of seniors were represented, with 556 people 55 and older, or 23%, living on the streets or in shelters, compared with 18% in 2014, continuing an upward trend that has been seen throughout the region since 2008. Homeless youth, meanwhile, saw a slight dip in numbers from 20% in 2014 to 16% of the population in 2017.
