As a member of the Community Data Consortium the SPCS has access to significant data bases at a local, provincial and national level.  We can create customized products that include the numbers and the analysis that is so important to understanding the realities of our communities.

The SPCS will work with you to determine your needs for data and will provide expert guidance on gathering the data and understanding the implications.

In working with the Social Service Administration Boards in Manitoulin/Sudbury and Parry Sound Districts in developing their Housing & Homelessness Plans we were able to develop detailed community profiles that contributed to their understanding of their districts.

“The Social Planning Council provided innovative and creative services in assisting us in gathering the data for our Housing and Homelessness Plan.  Their expertise in research, community engagement and data presentation ensured that our plan was comprehensive and that it will guide us over the next 10 years in our response to housing needs in the Manitoulin/Sudbury District.”
