The 2024 Edmonton Homeless Memorial on June 6 commemorated 421 people who died in 2023 as a direct or indirect result of being unhoused. This number is a significant increase from past years, the previous highest being 222 deaths in 2021. The service included songs, speeches (including by someone with lived experience of homelessness), laying flowers at the Homelessness Memorial, and releasing butterflies. The event was organized by the Edmonton Coalition on Housing and Homelessness (ECOHH).
