HelpSeeker is excited to present our webinar: What now? COVID recovery and city funding recalibration

In 2020, an unprecedented funding went into the Canadian social safety net in response to COVID-19. Charities alone saw cash balances grow from $5.5 billion a year to $6.2 billion. But as funding returns to normal, municipal leaders, service providers, emergency services and more, are asking: “How do we sustain program levels and provide the social support necessary for our recovery?”

In this webinar, we will present new data on the realities of social spending and use our Innsotech algorithm to illustrate the social realities we may be facing in regards to homelessness, suicide and domestic violence. We’ll also discuss the HelpSeeker products decision makers, across the country, are using to uncover investments in their social safety nets, anticipate social needs, and build funding strategies that create better social outcomes, for less.


In this webinar, you will learn:

Why having a complete picture of the investments coming into your municipality is key to better planning.

How predictive analytics can help anticipate the needs of the community.

How to provide more with less, as it relates to social support.
