City to count homeless next year

Yellowknife will count its homeless population next year with funding from the federal government, according to Coun. Linda Bussey. The city's community advisory board on homelessness opted at a meeting to hold what's called a point-in-time count. The methodology of the count will be determined later. The federal government offered $32,000 for the project. A similar count in 2015 found 139 homeless people, though the count was criticized for potentially under-counting people.
