The 2021 Thunder Bay Point in Time Count took place on October 2, 2021 at 6:00 pm and continued for 24 hours, ending October 3, 2021 at 6:00 pm. The Point-in-Time (PiT) Counts are a community-level measure of sheltered and unsheltered homelessness. It also provides a national picture of homelessness. The PiT Counts take place every couple of years on a single night between March 1 and April 30. The data from PiT Counts can help participating communities to identify service needs and inform planning to prevent and reduce homelessness.
