Grey County has completed its first study to better quantify homelessness in the area.

Director of Housing Anne Marie Shaw shared the results of a homelessness enumeration conducted in April to county councillors at Thursday’s meeting.

Shaw says the survey period was from April 23-27 and evaluators chose the end of the month as it’s when homeless people tend to use more services.

The survey identified 33 people experiencing homelessness in the area, although Shaw cautions it is not a fulsome number and the actual amount is higher.
