Design Principles

  • Data entered into CAMS is owned by the agency. The code is owned by BJPCAMS
  • Data will not be stored (backed up or copied) outside of Canada
  • CAMS is designed to encourage strengths-based practice
  • CAMS limits data input to information that can be used to improve quality of service to the people served and avoids collecting information that is superfluous
  • CAMS is designed to provide evidence of credible data
  • CAMS is designed to provide excellent security
  • CAMS support will work with each agency to meet its individual needs and to gain the maximum benefit from using CAMS
  • CAMS will provide quality service to agencies
  • CAMS pricing takes into account the financial constraints of the non-profit social services sector and of each participating agency
  • CAMS is designed to provide optimal reporting levels for agencies; neither so many reports that they are redundant, nor so few that they fail to meet reporting needs
