The 3rd Annual Canadian Homelessness Data Sharing Initiative

What can we learn if we start sharing data across projects?

In May each year, researchers from across Canada gather in Calgary to discuss the data they are collecting to support various projects related to homelessness. We have learned that our data can and should be shared to support new, better and more impactful analysis.

How can we use our collective data to produce better, more accurate results to inform the allocation of resources and end homelessness in our communities.

In short, how can we use our data to make a difference?

This 3rd Annual conference has been expanded and will now span two days:
Day one:

Will focus on discussions among researchers across the spectrum about how to get more from our data both collectively and individually.

Day one keynote: 

Steve Pomeroy – “Measuring non-housing outcomes of affordable housing investments”

Day two:

Presenters will highlight innovative practices in data utilization, analysis, and dissemination, and how data is being utilized to drive impact in the homeless-serving sector. Keynotes: 

Day two keynotes:

Abigail Schachter, Homeless Housing and Services Evaluator at the King County Department of Community and Human Services’ Performance Measurement and Evaluation Team. 

Kira Zylstra, Acting Director of All Home, the system planner for Seattle/King County.
