    Data sharing agreements

    To reduce respondent burden, Statistics Canada has entered into data-sharing agreements under Section 12 of the Statistics Act with Transport Canada and the Canadian Transportation Agency. Statistics Canada will only share data from this survey with those organizations that have demonstrated a requirement to use the data.

    Although, under the Section 12 of the Statistics Act, respondents can object to the sharing of information with other organizations, because Transport Canada has the legislative authority to collect this information on a mandatory basis pursuant to the Canada Transportation Act and the Transportation Information Regulations, respondents do not have the right to object to the sharing of the data.

    However, respondents may refuse to share their information with the Canadian Transportation Agency by writing a letter of objection to the Chief Statistician and returning it with the completed questionnaire. Under the terms of the Section 12 agreement, the Canadian Transportation Agency has agreed to keep the data confidential and use them only for statistical purposes.
