Didn't Ask, Don't Know, Prefer Not to Answer

These three options have been added to fields that originally had “Undisclosed” as an option. “Undisclosed” has been removed from the following fields:

  • Gender

  • Marital Status

  • Address (Prefer Not to Answer only)

  • Housing Type

  • Referred By

  • Ethnicity

  • Disability

  • In Canada 10 Years or Less

  • Self-Identifies As

  • Dietary Considerations

Didn’t Ask

All fields that currently have “Undisclosed” selected will be migrated to “Didn’t Ask”.

Whenever a client profile is in a forced review, the system will clear out the “Didn’t Ask” response and force the user to complete that question again, prompting them to take the opportunity during the review to ask the client.


Income Types

The following three income sources will be added to the options in your monthly income list.

  • Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB)

  • Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit (CRSB)

  • Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB)
