Centre for Gender, Diversity and Inclusion Statistics

This consultation is currently on hold until further notice.

Consultation objectives

In order to develop user-centric approaches to integrating data related to diversity and inclusion into the Gender, Diversity and Inclusion Statistics Hub, Statistics Canada is consulting with users of diversity and inclusion data.

Produced by the new Centre for Gender, Diversity and Inclusion Statistics, the hub serves as a focal point for data which aims to address gaps in the information about gender, sex and other intersecting identity factors, such as disability status, immigration status, and other ethno-cultural characteristics.

The proposed consultations will help improve the hub and will shed light on the information needs of Canadians with respect to gender, diversity and inclusion data.

Consultation methodology

Statistics Canada will conduct in-person consultations in two phases. The first phase will take place in in Ottawa, Ontario and the second phase will take place in Statistics Canada regional offices across Canada. Participants will be asked to answer a series of questions on their data needs and to provide feedback on their use of the hub.
