1. Due to a limited number of facilities in Northwest Territories and Nunavut, information for shelters in these territories has been combined, for reasons of confidentiality and data quality.
2. 'Other' includes all other facilities not otherwise classified. This category may include Rural Family Violence Prevention Centres in Alberta, Interim Housing in Manitoba, and other types of emergency shelters, such as YWCA's. These services may not be exclusive to abused women.
Note: Precise reporting period may vary. Shelters were asked to provide information for the twelve-month period ending March 31, 2008 or their own twelve month fiscal period. Because the number and type of shelters participating in each cycle of the Transition Home Survey may vary, comparisons of admissions from 2007/2008 to results from previous survey cycles are not advisable. The actual annual admissions breakdown for women and children is unknown for approximately 1% of the survey respondents. In there cases, the shelters provided only a total admissions for a period of 12 months but it was not possible to determine the precise number or women and children. As a result, it may be possible that the total number of annual admissions does not correspond to the sum of admissions for women and children.
