This blog is available in both official languages:
On this blog, you will:
- read compelling interviews with Statistics Canada's key data users and stakeholders on how, together, we tell Canada's story in numbers; and,
- find an opportunity to ask us questions or offer your feedback.
To mark the 150th year of Confederation throughout 2017, the blog will feature the views of historians, genealogists, academics, students and other experts.
Statistics Canada recognizes that the Internet is a 24/7 medium, and your messages and comments are welcome at any time. However, posting and moderating will occur during regular business hours, Monday to Friday. Messages and comments submitted after business hours or on weekends and statutory holidays will be read and moderated as early as possible.
The Connecting Data, Stories and People blog will post new articles each month.
Statistics Canada welcomes feedback and ideas that are constructive and relevant. All comments will be read and any emerging themes or helpful suggestions will be passed to the appropriate people in the organization.
However, we may not be able to respond to all comments. They will be handled on a case-by-case basis. For general enquiries about Statistics Canada products and services, contact us.
