About Data service centres

The goal of outreach activities is to build awareness of StatCan data and data services. Through the expansion and strengthening of partnerships with current and future user groups and communities, outreach efforts will build statistical capacity through workshops, webinars and customized solutions based on the needs of user-communities. These activities will, in turn, expand the responsible use of statistics for informed decision-making throughout Canada.

  • Put you, the data user, at the centre of our activities to enhance access, awareness and ease of use of the agency’s data and services;
  • Continually innovate and adapt so we can more effectively respond to your evolving data and information needs;
  • Strengthen user engagement and seek partnership opportunities across all sectors of Canadian society and the economy;
  • Build statistical capacity of data users in all sectors across the country
