Point-in-Time Count 2021 Cochrane District (Timmins)

As part of the Province’s efforts to end chronic homelessness by 2025 and the long-term goal to end homelessness, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing communicated to Service Managers and sector organizations its intention to not only continue with Pointin-Time Counts (PiT) which began in 2017, but also introduce By-Name Lists (BNL) across Ontario in 2021. Local homeless enumeration, said differently, the Point-in-Time method, is more than a tool used to count the number of people experiencing homelessness on a given day/night. It is a strategy used to provide insight into the nature and extent of homelessness within a community. The survey collects data about the demographics, history, and service needs of those experiencing homelessness to help guide decision-makers, planners, and service providers in directing resources to areas of greatest need. In April 2021, an Advisory Group was established in order to provide expertise, guidance, and support regarding the planning and implementation of a successful Point-in-Time (PiT) Count and By-Name List (BNL). In addition, a Lead Coordinator was hired to lead the initiative with the support of the Advisory Group.

Field Value
Data complies with a community standard (RDA-R1.3-01D)
This indicator requires that data complies with community standards. (FAIR ID = RDA-R1.3-01D).
Yes
Data uses knowledge representation expressed in standardised format (RDA-I1-01D)
The indicator serves to determine that an appropriate standard is used to express knowledge, in particular the data model and format (FAIR ID = RDA-I1-01D).
No
Data uses machine-understandable knowledge representation (RDA-I1-02D)
This indicator focuses on the machine-understandability aspect of the data. This means that data should be readable and thus interoperable for machines without any requirements such as specific translators or mappings (FAIR ID = RDA-I1-02D).
No
Data uses FAIR-compliant vocabularies (RDA-I2-01D)
The indicator requires the controlled vocabulary used for the data to conform to the FAIR principles, and at least be documented and resolvable using globally unique and persistent identifiers. The documentation needs to be easily findable and accessible (FAIR ID = RDA-I2-01D).
No
Data includes references to other data (RDA-I3-01D )
This indicator is about the way data is connected to other data, for example linking to previous or related research data that provides additional context to the data (FAIR ID = RDA-I3-01D).
Yes
Data is accessible through an access protocol that supports authentication and authorisation (RDA-A1.2-01D)
The indicator requires that if the data or local environment indicates a degree of additional protection then the access protocol must support authentication and authorisation of people and/or machines? (FARI ID = RDA-A1.2-01D)
No
Data can be accessed manually (RDA-A1-02D)
Data can be accessed manually (i.e., with human intervention, FAIR ID = RDA-A1-02D).
Yes
Data identifier resolves to a digital object (RDA-A1-03D)
Data identifier resolves to a digital object (FAIR ID = RDA-A1-03D)
Yes
Data is accessible through a standardised protocol (RDA-A1-04D)
The indicator refers to automated interactions between machines to access digital objects (FAIR ID = RDA-A1-04D).
Yes
Data can be accessed automatically (RDA-A1-05D)
Data can be accessed automatically (i.e. by a computer program, FAIR ID = RDA-A1-05D)
Yes
Data is accessible through a free access protocol (RDA-A1.1-01D)
The indicator requires that the protocol can be used free of charge which facilitates unfettered access (FAIR ID = RDA-A1.1-01D).
Yes
