Statistics Canada was established to ensure that Canadians have access to a trusted source of statistics on Canada to meet their highest priority needs. Access to trusted statistical information underpins democratic societies, as it supports evidence-based decision-making in the public and private sectors, and informs debate on public policy issues.
