Service Data NameDefinition

# of Admissions: Man/Boy: Community Supports Fund

A person who self-identifies as Man/Boy who requested and received services. The number of individuals by gender that were accepted to the funded project and receive direct services from paid staff during the reporting year. The same person can be counted more than once if they re-enter the service (i.e., this is not a unique individual count) but should only be counted under one gender identity category per admission. If the client carries into the next fiscal year, the client is reported again in the new reporting period. Admissions must be documented. E.g., a man begins staying at a shelter in April. He leaves the shelter after two weeks. He returns to the shelter in August for a month. In this scenario, two counts under Admissions by Man/Boy are reported because the man is counted as two admissions. E.g., a man begins trauma therapy or long-term counselling in April. Because there is a plan for long-term treatment, only one count under Admissions by Man/Boy is reported. If the man discontinues treatment but returns in October and is accepted back into the program, two counts under Admissions by Man/Boy are reported. If a survivor attends drop-in counselling only with no long-term plan, each session attended would be counted under Admissions by Man/Boy if that is the main type of direct service funded in the project. “Direct” services include, but are not limited to, counselling, system navigation through case management, and Specialized Accommodation for Survivors of human trafficking. Only survivors/individuals at risk of human trafficking that received “direct” services should be reported under this data element. Individuals reached through broad outreach and awareness/education campaigns should not be reported. Dependents of survivors or individuals at risk of trafficking are not reported under this data element even if they received services.

# of Individuals Who Exited Culturally Responsive Supports/Activities Prior to Completion of Goal: Community Supports Fund

Unique, or unduplicated, count of individuals who have exited culturally responsive services prior to achieving the stated goal(s) of the service (i.e., dropped out). An individual is only counted once in the reporting year. Culturally responsive supports and activities include land-based activities, healing/cultural teaching circles, cultural support groups, community/cultural events, etc. The same person can be counted in other service subcategories (i.e., counselling, peer mentorship, mental health and addictions, etc.) if they received more than one direct service in the reporting year.

Note: To avoid duplicate counts of the same individual in the reporting year, only report the number of clients in the main type of service your project delivers. For example:

Specialized Accommodation for Survivors of human trafficking that also provide wrap around supports should only provide a unique count of Specialized Accommodation clients.

Counselling services that also do outreach, public awareness and/or provide wrap around supports should only provide a unique count of individuals that received counselling.

Community Supports Fund: Ministry-funded Agency ExpendituresTotal ministry-funded expenses for the Transfer Payment Recipient to administer and/or deliver this program in the reporting year (cumulative).
# of Individuals Served: Man/Boy: Community Supports Fund

A person who self-identifies as man/boy who requested and received services. Unique, or unduplicated, count of all individuals by their gender (including Indigenous individuals) who received direct services in the funded project in the reporting year. A unique individual served is reported under one gender identity category to avoid duplicate counts. This count represents an active client roster for the year. If the client carries into the next fiscal year, the client is reported once in the new reporting period. “Direct” services include, but are not limited to, counselling, system navigation through case management, and Specialized Accommodation services. Only survivors/individuals at risk of human trafficking that received “direct” services should be reported under this data element. Individuals reached through broad outreach and awareness/education campaigns should not be reported. Dependents of survivors or individuals at risk of trafficking are not reported under this data element even if they received services.

Note: To avoid duplicate counts of the same individual in the reporting year, only report the number of Individuals Served by Gender in the main type of service your project delivers. For example:

Specialized Accommodation for Survivors of human trafficking that also provide wrap around supports should only provide a unique count of Specialized Accommodation clients by gender.

Counselling services that also do outreach, public awareness and/or provide wrap around supports should only provide a unique count of individuals by gender that received counselling.

The purpose is to report the unique number of clients served by gender identity in the main type of service provided. This will prevent reporting the same individual more than once in the fiscal year.
