Please note, the following changes, bug fixes and improvements have been implemented:

  • Recent changes:
    • An updated and improved way to discover geospatial data as well as related products and reference materials was launched. Access to this redesigned web portal is available via the Geography link located in the top navigation menu on the Statistics Canada website. Outcome of this redesigned is as a result of the findings from the virtual group discussions that took place in June, 2021 with geography data users.
