Having recently taken over responsibility for maintaining the National Road Network (NRN), Statistics Canada will be reviewing the NRN's data model.
The NRN contains trusted geospatial data on Canadian road characteristics, and forms a foundational layer of the GeoBase initiative. GeoBase is a federal, provincial and territorial government initiative that is overseen by the Canadian Council on Geomatics. It ensures that access is provided to an up-to-date and maintained base of high-quality geospatial data for all of Canada. Through the GeoBase portal, users can access this information at no cost and with unrestricted use.
In an ongoing effort to improve products and services, Statistics Canada is opening a dialogue with users and partners of this product. As part of this initiative, a consultation is being organized to seek input on the NRN's data model and to ensure that it meets users' needs.
