The national shelter study 2005-2014 : emergency shelter use in Canada / [author, Aaron Segaert]. : Em12-17/2017E-PDF

"The National Shelter Study: Emergency Shelter Use in Canada 2005–2014 is the second nationwide study done using emergency shelter data collected over an extended period of time to establish a baseline count and description of the homeless population in Canada. The first national shelter study was published in 2013 and covered the period from 2005 to 2009. The second study updates information and extends findings to 2014. In 2014, statistics on Indigenous identity, citizenship and military service of shelter users are available for the first time. The second National Shelter Study (NSS) used data provided by over 200 emergency shelters in Canada. These data were collected electronically by the Homeless Individuals and Families Information System (HIFIS), the City of Toronto, BC Housing and the Province of Alberta. Emergency shelter use is the best available indicator of large-scale trends in homelessness. As the only homelessness research using a large nationally representative sample, the results of this study are important for understanding homelessness in Canada"--Executive summary, p. 5.
