Terms and Conditions

I, the undersigned, do certify that my educational institution is an accredited Canadian post‑secondary educational institution, has committed to be a financially contributing member of the Data Liberation Initiative (DLI), and that I am authorized to bind my educational institution by my signature below.

I understand that:

  1. Via the Data Liberation Initiative (DLI), Statistics Canada will offer my educational institution timely access, on a subscription basis, to standard Statistics Canada data products, such as public use microdata files (non-identifiable datasets containing characteristics pertaining to surveyed units). Statistics Canada will continue to offer support and training in relation to the Data Liberation Initiative (DLI) collection.
  2. My educational institution will be invoiced by Statistics Canada once a year, during the second quarter (April-June) for participation in the DLI program, and payment shall be remitted within thirty (30) days of receipt of invoice. As part of the DLI governance, subscription fees are reviewed at each DLI External Advisory Committee (EAC) meetings. The following methods of payment are accepted; Cheque / Money Order (non-federal clients); Credit Card (MasterCard), (Visa) or (American Express) (non-federal clients); Federal Government of Canada Interdepartmental Settlement (federal clients); Direct Deposit (non-federal clients).
  3. This agreement shall remain in effect until it is terminated by either party after giving one year's notice.
  4. Should my educational institution choose to withdraw from this agreement or not respect its financial commitment to DLI as per clause 2, this agreement will be terminated.
  5. Any repeated or unremedied violations of this agreement may result in the termination of this agreement by either party upon written notice to the other party.
  6. Authorized users shall be made aware, by my educational institution, of the conditions of use of the data by being provided with the appropriate licences.
  7. The majority of our standard and custom products including Public Use Microdata Files are disseminated under the terms and conditions of the Statistics Canada Open Licence. For any questions regarding the Open Licence see: Open Licence.
  8. Non-Statistics Canada data products in the DLI collection are subject to separate licence agreements: see Sections 2 and 4.

Affirmation

I acknowledge that I have read and understand the terms and conditions under which the data products are supplied. I agree to abide by these conditions and to take all reasonable measures required to enforce and administer them within my institution.
