about us

The Data Analysis Coordinators (DACs) provide a range of support services to the early years community in Peel region. Agencies delivering services to children aged 0-6 years and their families can request data, research and program evaluation support from the DACs. The DAC program exists across communities in Ontario and is funded in part by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS). The Region of Peel is the host agency for the Peel DAC program.

Supports provided by the DACs

Within Peel region, the DACs currently work closely with the following early years stakeholders:

  • Ministry of Children and Youth Services corporate and regional offices:
    • Includes MCYS-funded early learning and child development programs (e.g., preschool speech and language, infant development, blind-low vision, infant hearing, child care)
  • Ontario Early Years Centres/family resource programs
  • Best Start Network
  • Success by 6
  • School boards
  • Early Literacy Specialists

DAC service objectives:

  1. Support early years research, evaluation and information needs at the community, regional and provincial level
  2. Collect, analyze and report on information relevant to the community and/or early years sector
  3. Collect reports and maintain a resource library
  4. Liaise with key stakeholders
  5. Support knowledge mobilization and exchange
  6. Build capacity within the community to understand and apply information and early years research

The work of the DACs in Peel region is guided by our scope of work. The DAC scope provides information on the areas of support which DACs will provide to the different early years service providers which we serve. This scope was developed in consultation with these early years service providers and is also in line with the DAC Service Description provided by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.

To ensure a smooth process for requesting support services from the DACs and to also ensure that DACs are able to respond to our stakeholders in a timely and effective manner, guidelines for making data, mapping and project requests are provided.
