MAKING it COUNT News from the CCSD Community Data Program Team Canadian Council on Social Development Canada’s longest serving social development organization In volume 7, issue 1 - Summer 2018: View this email in your browser --> Dispatch from the 2018 Annual Meeting


We’d like to start by thanking Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health for hosting this years’ Annual Meeting in Guelph, Ontario from Wednesday, May 23rd to Friday, May 25th. The proceedings began with a data workshop on poverty led by Jasmin Ing (City of Calgary) and Heath Priston (Toronto) on Wednesday. Thursday was full of discussion and presentations. Program Lead Michel Frojmovic shared highlights from the past program year, including CDP’s new website, and Mike Ditor provided an update on data acquisition and access, including census custom geographies. Katherine Scott and Mary Clarke shared some new features and where the CDP is headed in the next year, and Michel Frojmovic and Lisa Davis presented a progress report on the Local Immigration network pilot and upcoming plans.
 
Presentations were given on the Manitoba Collaborative Data Portal and the 211 Initiative. Our hosts Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health showed how they use CDP data to create interactive dashboards.
 
Friday consisted of three round tables: “How to Run a Consortium,” “Opportunities and strategy for future partnerships between the CDP and “sector consortia,” and “New Program Tools.” Mary Clarke, Training and Capacity Building Coordinator, found the round tables especially helpful. “As a CDP staff team member I actually heard what leads need to help run and train members in their local consortium,” she says.
 
Next year’s meeting will be held May 22-24, 2019, location TBD.
 
Read the Report of the Annual Meeting, 2018, including actions arising from the meeting.

Back to Table of Contents --> Congratulations to the winner of the first CDP Award
This year’s meeting included a brand new feature- the very first CDP Award. The inaugural CDP Award was given to Peter Marriott of the City of Vancouver for the City of Vancouver Healthy City Strategy and the Vancouver Poverty Reduction Strategy. Both projects addressed topics of direct relevance to social development and to advance the social development agenda. These initiatives made explicit use of CDP data in support of a clear and compelling narrative, including reliance on value-added data analysis in order to create new indicators. The submissions also relied on effective data visualization techniques.
 
The CDP Award celebrates projects that show community data as evidence that supports decision-making and community engagement around issues central to community well-being. Submissions were judged on 1) innovation, 2) content and presentation and 3) level of engagement/impact.
 
Other entries included innovative projects from Calgary, Burlington, Region of Peel, Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, Toronto, and York Region.
 
Check out all of the great submissions as well as other documents from the meeting.

If your organization is putting data to use in innovative ways, we would love to see and share with our network! Email Alex to share your work.

Back to Table of Contents --> Refresh of CDP website
You’ve probably noticed some changes at communitydata.ca. We’ve been working on redesigning our site to be more attractive and easier to use. The website refresh focused on design and functionality.
 
The new site has a fresh look and feel including a new landing page, a streamlined structure, a new theme and layout, and easier to access content. To be more user-friendly, we’ve developed new tools and improved existing ones. Users can now find data by theme in the catalogue. Check out our expanded external data resources page, FAQs, and calendar of events. The design also provides back-end administrative efficiencies so our team can more easily respond to your needs.
 
Please share your questions or comments about the website refresh with us.

Back to Table of Contents --> 2016 Census Custom tables including Custom Geographies 
Census orders have been backed up at Statistics Canada, particularly for data at custom geographies. We have discussed how to resolve this situation with their Statistical Information Service, who indicated, among other measures, that they will be able to commit more resources to our order.  

We have already received about twenty tables from the Census, including around a dozen Target Group Profiles and we expect another couple dozen tables to arrive this summer. These tables will include more Target Group Profiles, Community Poverty Project tables, custom tables and standard tables at geographies not available for free from Statistics Canada.

In addition to this, we have just received our first data tables at custom geographies. We have catalogued the Census Profile and the Age (127) and Sex tables for the following sets of custom geographies:
·  Durham
·  Erie-St.Clair
·  Hamilton
·  Kingston
·  London
·  Northern Ontario
·  Parry Sound-Nipissing
·  Toronto
·  Wellington Dufferin Guelph
·  LHIN sub-regions

Over the next month and a half, we should receive twelve Target Group Profiles at these custom geographies. Following this, Statistics Canada will begin production of these tables for another batch of custom geographies.


Back to Table of Contents --> 2016 Taxfiler data coming this summer
We will receive the 2016 T1 Family File (taxfiler) tables later this summer. These tables provide information on the income of families, seniors and individuals as well as migration estimates, financial data and data on charitable donations. The Community Data Program also acquires a set of custom tables for census subdivision geographies (municipal boundaries) as well as a few custom tabulations of taxfiler data.


Back to Table of Contents --> Fall Webinars
In the fall of 2018, CDP members can look forward to webinars on the Canadian Housing Statistics Plan. There will be a chance to hear about new data they have for Ontario and British Columbia and what we can expect in the future. We’re also planning a webinar for leads on "How to run a consortium." This will give the community a chance to hear more from leads on how they run their CDP meetings, train users on the data and attract new members.

Canada’s Fossil-Fuelled Pensions

Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives - Fri, 2018-06-22 14:26

The British Columbia Investment Management Corporation is the steward of BC’s public pensions, but bankrolls companies whose current business models exceed the climate change targets agreed to in the Paris Agreement to which Canada is a signatory.

The pensions of over 500,000 British Columbians and assets worth $135 billion are managed by the Corporation—-one of Canada's largest consolidated pools of wealth. This report asks if the Corporation is investing funds in ways that support the shift to a 2°C global warming limit. The authors found that the Corporation's claim of responsible investment is more talk than walk as its actions are not consistent with the risks posed by climate change. Instead of curbing investments to align with the Paris Agreement, many of the Corporation’s oil and gas investments are on the rise.

Read the report.
