2020 Conference Cancellation Notice

After much deliberation we are announcing the cancellation of the Data That Makes A Difference 2020 Conference, on May 20-21, 2020.

The difficult decision to cancel the conference this year was made in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, in accordance with the recommendations of Alberta Health Services (AHS), the World Health Organization (WHO), and Federal, Provincial, and Municipal governments.

Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) and School of Public Policy have been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) situation, specifically the rise in cases throughout Alberta and around the globe. The safety and well-being of staff, attendees and presenters was at the forefront of our decision making.

We would to thank all the great presenters we had had lined up for all their hard work submitting proposals and preparing presentations for this year.

We hope you will join us again in 2021!
