Canadian Centre for Energy Information (CCEI) continual improvement

Consultation objectives

The Canadian Centre for Energy Information (CCEI) is an independent one-stop shop for comprehensive energy data and expert analysis. The centre compiles, reconciles and integrates energy data from a number of Canadian sources and makes data from multiple providers available free of charge on a user-friendly website.

Statistics Canada launched the CCEI to expand publicly available data and analysis, and ensure all Canadians have access to centralized energy information.

The consultations ensured that the CCEI meets users' needs and identified any further improvements to be made.

Consultation methodology

Statistics Canada conducted virtual group discussions in both official languages with participants from across the country. Participants were asked to provide feedback on the redesigned web page.

Results

The consultation revealed that the portal users want more granular and disaggregated data; an improved information architecture; more frequently updated content; and introductory content for new data users (e.g. education content, overview of different types of energy). It was also shown that the participants didn't feel they were the target audience for the CCEI.

Statistics Canada thanks participants for their participation in this consultation. Their insights will guide the agency's web development and ensure that the final products meet users' expectations.
