During the first Community Data Forum, we were delighted to welcome our partner from the University of Windsor, Dr. Reza Nakhaie, to present findings from the first round of assessments.

The data was pulled from the initial assessments of 135 clients.

Some quick facts:

  • 2442 suggested actions were pulled from 135 assessments, for an average of settlement 18 actions per client
  • 84.6% of clients assessed rated their personal health “good” or “great”
  • 55.5% of clients assessed had worked prior to coming to Canada
  • Overall, across the Social Determinants of Health, clients demonstrated positive indicators 65.7% of the time

Following the presentation, participants were invited to complete activity sheets that would help us to determine the data that they might require to help plan for activities and services that reduce barriers and leverage newcomer assets.

To support us in this activity, we ensured that participants selected tables upon registration. They had the opportunity to select one that corresponded with the following Social Determinants of Health:

  1. Economic Stability
  2. Education
  3. Health and Health Care
  4. Neighbourhood and Built Environment
  5. Social and Community Context
