Government Statistical Offices Guide


Statistics Canada is Canada's national statistical office. It collects and publishes statistical information about Canadian population, its economy, culture, and myriad other topics. The agency's largest undertaking is the Census Program, a comprehensive survey conducted every five years, that paints the definitive statistical portrait of Canadian society.

It should be noted that the depth and detail provided on these sites often varies greatly, so examining the statistical branches of international organizations (always recommended) may be necessary in some cases.
