Technical assistance

Statistics Canada's provides technical assistance to international organizations and statistical offices and systems in other countries through two main types of activities:

  • on-site technical assistance in other countries, either as single missions or as part of broader projects
  • in-house technical assistance, either through formal training or brief study visits.

Statistics Canada's technical assistance activities are designed to help other countries develop their national statistical systems, providing them with information they need to monitor their social and economic programs. This, in turn, helps to improve the quality of international statistical system which is important for the global community and helps ensure better international comparability across statistical domains.

The provision of technical assistance also helps Statistics Canada to better understand the statistical needs of developing countries, which helps the agency carry out its global responsibilities.
