Statistics Canada is committed to openness and transparency. The Statistics Act makes provisions for transparent and accountable decisions on statistical matters.
We are also dedicated to making more information available about our accountability under the Statistics Act, such as entering into data sharing agreements.
We know your information is important to you and it's important to us that we look after it. Access to trusted statistical information supports evidence-based decision-making in both the public and private sectors. This is why we are dedicated to making quality information available to Canadians and policy-makers.
