Statistics Canada launches crowdsourcing consultation on new Centre for Gender, Diversity and Inclusion Statistics

Ottawa, October 18, 2018 ― As part of its commitment to meet evolving information needs, Statistics Canada has launched a crowdsourcing site to obtain input from Canadians on the new Gender, Diversity and Inclusion Statistics hub.

The hub serves as a focal point for data produced by the new Centre for Gender, Diversity and Inclusion Statistics, which aims to address gaps in the availability of information by gender, sex and other intersecting identity factors, such as disability, Aboriginal status (First Nations, Métis and Inuit), and other ethno-cultural characteristics. The hub enables users to easily access and analyze a wealth of statistical information, relevant to the evaluation of programs, policies and other initiatives from a gender, diversity and inclusion perspective.

The crowdsourcing site includes six short questions, allowing Canadians to let Statistics Canada know what kind of data they would like to see in the new hub. Participation is anonymous and respondent information is protected by the Privacy Act.

All Canadians are invited to participate from October 18 to December 21, 2018.
