Homelessness research in Clyde River

The Department of Family Services, in partnership with the Nunavut Housing Corporation, is conducting a survey in Clyde River from March 19-29, 2018 to better understand homelessness in the community. A research team just completed similar survey work in Pond Inlet.

Staff from the Department of Family Services Poverty Reduction division will go door-to-door with local survey teams to speak with people who permanently sleep in the dwelling, and with those who sleep there temporarily because they have no other place to go. Surveys take approximately 20 minutes.

Information provided is confidential and anonymous, and will be used to help find community-based solutions to Nunavut’s housing crisis. Participants will be compensated for their time

For more information, contact Jennifer Jhingoor at 975-5252 or Francine Doucet at 975-5210 or email hiddenhomelessness@gov.nu.ca.

This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Homelessness Partnering Strategy.
