The 2nd Annual Canadian Homelessness Data Sharing Initiative

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

In May 2016, researchers from across Canada gathered in Calgary to discuss the data they were collecting to support various projects related to homelessness. We discovered 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?


Join the Calgary Homeless Foundation and The School of Public Policy for Data That Makes a Difference, our 2nd Annual Canadian Homelessness Data Sharing Initiative. During this distinctive and informative event, you will hear from researchers across the spectrum about how to get more from our data both collectively and individually. 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.
