Welcome to an overview of the new features of Statistics Canada's website. Over the next two minutes, we will quickly walk you through the new features and enhancements. Let's get started.

(Statistics Canada's homepage is shown. The webpage scrolls all the way to the bottom and back up again.)

To begin, you will immediately notice that the top navigation menu bar has changed. Here, we can see the "Subjects" menu item, which is very popular among our users.

(A red box highlights the top navigation bar. The cursor selects the "Subjects" tab on the menu bar. A red box highlights the "Subjects" tab. The "Subjects" page is displayed.)

We have consolidated and simplified access to data products, instead of creating separate environments for CANSIM tables, summary tables, etc.

(The cursor now selects the "Data" tab on the menu bar and the "Data" page appears in view. A red box highlights the "Data" tab. Another red box highlights different types of data products.)

To navigate the results, you can use the use the 'Filter results by Keyword(s)' function to type in keywords or select a series of filters to narrow down the results and the number of corresponding products. Sorting options to change the order of the results are available. The old CANSIM table number can still be used in the new keyword search function.

(A red box highlights the "Keyword(s)" text box. The cursor selects the "Sort by" tab and displays the different options (Date, relevance and title). A red box highlights the "Keyword(s)" text box. The cursor selects the "Keyword(s)" text box and types CANSIM table number 176-0008, choosing the magnifying glass button in order to confirm the keywords search.)

(A link to the CANSIM table is shown on screen.)

We also offer direct access to analytical products, reference products and a way to find information for a region. This section will take you directly to the Census Program. This menu item provides information to survey participants. It also presents results by survey and statistical program.

(The mouse hovers over the top menu bar, displaying the "Analysis" button, the "Reference" button, the "Geography" button which are all highlighted by a red box. The "Census program" button and then the "Surveys and statistical programs" buttons are highlighted by a red box. A sub menu appears underneath "Surveys and statistical programs" showing links for "Information for survey participants", "Results and documentation of surveys and statistical programs" and "Surveys and statistical programs – Main page". This menu is highlighted by a red box. The cursor selects the last button.)

(A webpage appears with links to "Information for Survey Participants" and "Results and documentation of surveys and statistical programs". The cursor hovers over both links.)

Thank you for watching this video. We hope that it was useful. If you have any questions, please select "Contact us" at the bottom-left corner of the screen.

(A red box highlights the "Contact us" button. The mouse cursor hovers on top of the "Contact us" button on the bottom of the page.)

(The Canada wordmark appears on screen.)
