Some minor enhancements were made to how we authenticate users into the 'Online Reports' section of the site, please let us know if you experience any problems with these enhancements.



2005-11-26   The previously mentioned MySQL database problem has been resolved.



2005-11-25   We are currently working to solve some MySQL database connectivity issues. If, when working with the 'Online Reports' functionality of the capstats website, you continually experience this error:

Content-type: text/html Can't call method "prepare" on an undefined value at c:/var/data/WebDB.pm line 239.

Please try again later. We are currently working to fix this issue, and will post again when it has been resolved. Also, you may have experienced a message like the following when using our 'Online Reports':

This page contains both secure and insecure items. Do you want to display nonsecure items?

This issue has now been resolved.



2005-09-27   The 'Our Contact Information' page has been updated with pictures and contact information for this years central and regional co-ordinators. If you are a CAP site administrator or youth worker with questions or comments please direct them to your regional co-ordinators.



2005-09-18   Looking for Ontario CAP sites but text only search engines are not your thing? Try our new experimental Ontario CAP site Google map! See a graphical representation of the currently active CAP sites in Ontario, PAN and zoom to your hearts content, and click on the red markers to learn more about the CAP site in the area you are interested in.

If you find any errors with any information being displayed, please let us know.



2005-09-12   CAPstats now uses SSL! Any section of the website where personal information may be transmitted or redisplayed takes place under a 128bit SSL connection.

To verify that a page you are accessing uses SSL be sure you see https:// in the URL (not just the usual http://).



Also look for the gold lock which appears at the bottom right of your browser (your SSL lock may appear in a different location depending on the browser you are using). Double click this lock for more information on the SSL connection.




2005-08-31   You might notice the new option on the left hand side of your screen! The 'Online Reports' section is now available in French. If you are a French user of CAPStats please let us know if you notice anything which isn't translated correctly in this newly available section.



2005-08-28   The 'Online Reports' section of the website is operating again for CAP 2005-2006.

Submission due dates for statistics and invoicing are as follows:

2005, July 31 (For period 07/01 to 07/31)
2005, August 31 (For period 08/01 to 08/31)
2005, September 30 (For period 09/01 to 09/30)
2005, October 31 (For period 10/01 to 10/31)
2005, November 30 (For period 11/01 to 11/30)
2005, December 31 (For period 12/01 to 12/31)
2006, January 31 (For period 01/01 to 01/31)
2006, February 28 (For period 02/01 to 02/28)

This year we have done away with the 'General' statistics and invoicing passwords. Now all that is required to gain entry to these sections are the 'Regional' passwords.

Just a reminder that the base hourly rate for youth workers is $8.50 with the benefit multiplier still at %17.5.

Very shortly we hope to have an SSL (secure sockets layer) certificate which will serve to protect the submission of reported data. Once implemented you should notice a small padlock in the bottom right of every report entry page (icon and location depending on your browser) indicating your data is being protected by SSL. This is just one of the ways we are taking steps to ensure the privacy and security of our users and their personal information.

Please note that the French versions of the 'Online Reports' will be arriving shortly.

Also note that this website is currently running off of a small temporary server and response times will be slower. Eventually the website will migrate to a larger, long-term home, but for now we will have to grin and bear it.

Lastly, as always, please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.



2005-08-07   CAPstats gets a new look!

The whole site has been overhauled to be more visually appealing (we hope!) and easier to navigate. It's a work in progress so please bear with us. If you experience any bugs or anything which looks incorrect, please let us know.

Please note that the French versions of the 'Online Reports' will be arriving shortly.



2005-08-01   The 'Online Reports' section of this website is currently down for retooling for the upcoming 2005-2006 cycle. Please check back periodically for updates regarding this years program.

If you believe you still have outstanding reports for the 2004-2005 program, please contact Jennifer Marriott at jmarriott@accessola.com.
