StatsCAN Plus

A new hub for energy and environment statistics

In Canada, as well as globally, energy and environmental issues often intersect, given the use of natural resources.

To improve access to energy and environmental data, the Canadian Centre for Energy Information (CCEI) has launched a new section on the CCEI portal: Energy & Environment (E&E).  

The new E&E section, developed by Statistics Canada (StatCan) in partnership with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), will allow data users to visualize key energy and environmental data, such as greenhouse gas emissions, household energy use, zero-emission vehicles and energy resource reserves.

Through the CCEI initiative, StatCan is working in collaboration with Natural Resources Canada, ECCC, the Canada Energy Regulator, and provincial and territorial energy ministries to address long-standing challenges to the energy information system in Canada, improve the quality of energy data, and increase access to energy information products and analysis.

The CCEI is already a comprehensive portal with more than 750 energy-related resources. Building on these, the new E&E section features 17 environmental indicators and 11 data visualizations.

Notably, the E&E section will also feature in-depth explanations on the differences between the two methods used in Canada to track greenhouse gas emissions: ECCC’s National Inventory Report (Canada’s official inventory) and StatCan’s physical flow accounts.

The new section seeks to make these data easier to understand and use. Check back regularly for trends and comparisons, as well as future integration of additional datasets, such as the Air Pollutants Emissions Inventory and Black Carbon Emissions Inventory.
