Community Progress Indicators (CPI) Reports use a standard set of indicators to produce a detailed portrait of homelessness in the community, and document the impact of a community’s efforts to reduce and prevent homelessness. Shelter data provided by the community’s emergency shelters (e.g., through the Homeless Individuals and Families Information System-HIFIS), is supplemented by contextual data drawn from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), Statistics Canada (National Household Survey and Labour Force Survey) as well as project results of HPS-funded projects and Point-in-Time Counts.
