Homelessness Survey in Arviat

The Department of Family Services, in partnership with the Nunavut Housing Corporation, is conducting a survey in Arviat from April 23-May 4, to better understand homelessness in the community. A research team just completed similar survey work in Pond Inlet and Clyde River.

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 867-975-5252 or Francine Doucet at 867-975-5210 or email

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