The Canada Year Book has offered the most reliable and objective statistical information about Canada since its first edition was published before Confederation in 1867. Written in an accessible, plain language style, the 2007 Canada Year Book's 31 chapters summarize expert analyses and detailed social and economic facts and figures about Canada and its population. Each chapter explores a facet of Canada in an overview and four focus articles about more recent trends and developments. In 2007, the Canada Year Book introduced new chapters on Aboriginal peoples, ethnic diversity and immigration, families and housing, children and youth, languages, and seniors. The other 25 chapters have been updated with new statistics and analyses.

The 2007 edition has more than 500 pages filled with short analytical articles, 215 charts and maps, and 270 tables of the most relevant and recent data.
