This survey points to the fact that there are many homeless people living in Victoria and has a few direct recommendations towards solutions. However, all of these solutions need the full moral and financial support of both the Provincial and Federal governments. The Vancouver Island Health Authority was repeatedly mentioned as the institution people were looking to for leadership and finances but VIHA was recently cut by $450,000 by the BC Liberal government under Premier Gordon Campbell. Not only has money be cut but services have been increased to provide for many more people living with Hepatitis C in the downtown core in addition to the massive work loaded already placed upon AIDS Victoria, downtown Health Units, and the needle exchange.

According to this survey more than 1,242 of our neighbours in the Capital Region are homeless or nearly homeless. It dispells the myth that homelessness in imported to Victoria from far way places: %73 were from the greater Victoria area, %16 from elsewhere in BC, and only %11 from outside British Columbia.

This survey cost $100,000 (raised through a combination of tax dollars and charitable donations) used the services of 250 volunteers during a one-week survey, which recorded responses from 815 homeless and unstably housed individuals in the Capital Region. The Capital Regional District has established a secretariat of CRD staff, which is mandated to form the Regional Homeless Task Force, which will review and update the Victoria Community Plan for Homelessness. The first recommendation made was: That the Planning & Protective Services Committee recommends to the Capital Regional Hospital District Board: 1. That $75,000 from the 2007 Section 20(3) budget is set aside as a contribution, along with funding from other agencies, toward the cost of producing the Regional Homeless Action Plan." This survey was the 2nd survey in the past two years. On January 15, 2005 more than 150 community volunteers participated in a “rough count” of the homeless. The estimates of the number of absolute homeless from the rough count and from the use of the shelters was about 700 people. It should be noted that 47 children were dependent on someone who was homeless.

The results of this survey were unveiling at Victoria's City Hall on April 19, 2007. FOR MORE INFORMATION
