Homelessness research symposium.

Service providers, individuals with lived experience, academia, government and community stakeholders gathered for a two-day research symposium in Calgary last month to discuss homelessness. The third annual symposium was hosted by the Calgary Homeless Foundation along with The School of Public Policy, Homeward Trust Edmonton, Alberta Centre for Child, Family and Community Research as well as the 7 Cities on Housing and Homelessness. Participants shared advances in data collection for client programs and system outcomes, as well as presented new knowledge about best practices in data collection and analysis. Key note speakers were Dr. Stephen Gaetz, director of the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness/Homeless Hub, and Dr. Tim Aubry, Faculty of Social Sciences Research Chair in Community Mental Health and Homelessness with the University of Ottawa.
