There are many challenges facing Canadians today: income inequality, an aging population, urbanization, technological change, globalization, a shift to more renewable energy sources, and even emerging issues like the COVID-19 pandemic. To be able to respond, Canadians need data they can trust.

(The words: "timely and reliable data" appear on screen)

As Canada's data experts, Statistics Canada understands the need for timely and reliable data in a digital world.

(The words: "Traditional" and "Alternative" are on screen)

That's why we use both traditional and alternative data sources to get Canadians the information they need.

We also have great respect for the importance of information--and for confidentiality.

(The word: "trust" appears on screen)

Maintaining your trust is our highest priority, so when you provide us with your data, protecting your privacy is our top concern.

That protection starts before we ask for any data. We have built transparency into our governance framework so that everything we do prioritizes and safeguards your privacy.

(The words: "Legal", "Policy" and "Privacy" appear on screen)

Our experts carefully consider legal, policy, and privacy concerns every single time we ask for information.
