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 4th Annual conference spans two days:

This two day conference focuses on discussions among researchers across the spectrum about how to get more from our data, both collectively and individually. Presenters will also highlight innovative practices in data utilization, analysis, and dissemination, and look at how data is being utilized to drive impact in the homeless-serving sector. This event is aimed to spark new research ideas and generate questions around how research and data can positively affect individuals experiencing homelessness.

Join the Calgary Homeless Foundation and The School of Public Policy for Data That Makes a Difference, our 4th annual Canadian Homelessness Data Sharing Initiative. During this distinctive and informative event, we’ll also discuss future opportunities, and connect with one another to build our own networks in our shared vision of using data to make a difference.
