Other info can be updated.The homeless facility list is based on last events list, recent internet research and Election Canadas list from their enumeration. We expect you to conduct further research and can add/remove facilities based on your judgement of the appropriateness of the facility for enumeration. We will provide guidelines as to what should be targeted.Best enumeration approach will be made between you and the administrator (assuming enumerator pairs will visit)Confirm requirements made in the budget piece of the work package that you are getting at this conferenceIncidentally you are getting a shelter list for the work package being distributed at this conference. This is just for budget purposes only do not do any additional research at this time this will be done as part of the January work package. Next slide details Attestation of Residence but explain how it fits with enumeration overlaps with homeless facilities and SVAs. An Attestation of Residence is a form that an administrator of an institution can use verify a particular residents address. It becomes a piece of ID that an individual can use as proof of address. Similar process used by EC during the fed electionInstitutions can include facilities where:The residents use that particular address as their residential address The residents may have ID challenges. E.G. Care homes, seniors residences, student residences, reserves, homeless facilities) DEO to identify and send appropriate institutions a list of Authorized Signatories for the institution to identify who can sign these letters.Only institutions completing and returning this form will get the A of R forms and these will be added to a list that the DEO will need to ensure are distributed to the voting places where these individuals will likely be voting </p></li></ul>
