People are homeless when they do not have housing or rely on couch-surfing with family and friends. Homelessness happens for many reasons, including challenges with physical disability, mental illness, addiction, or the ability to find adequate employment. The number of homeless people in Surrey is a measure of the size of the homelessness problem and community need for affordable housing, adequate income, and access to health and social support services. The City aims to end homelessness by 2032. Data source: Metro Vancouver Regional Steering Committee on Homelessness.
