Web Data Service (WDS)

Statistics Canada has developed a Web Data Service that provides access to data and metadata that we release each business day. This is a good option for users who want to consume a discrete amount of data points updates to Statistics Canada data.

To obtain information on how to use and consume our Web Data Service, please read the Web Data Service User Guide.

The Statistics Canada SDMX REST web services provide access to the time series made available on the Statistics Canada's website in a structured form. For more information, please see the Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange (SDMX) User Guide.

Our Web Data Service gives developers access to Statistics Canada data via the following 15 methods:

Please note that CANSIM table numbers are now referred to as Product IDs (PID). For reference, a look-up table providing the concordance between CANSIM table numbers and the new Product IDs is available.

For access to a file which contains all data and metadata released by Statistics Canada each business day, please see the Delta File service.
