Statistics Canada is currently conducting a public consultation on the 2026 Census of Population. The online consultation questionnaire allows Canadians to provide input on the census to help determine the content and dissemination strategy of the next Census.



The Community Data Program is a membership-based community development initiative open to any Canadian public, non-profit or community sector organization with a local service delivery or public policy mandate.

The Community Data Program makes data accessible and useful for all members with training and capacity building resources. Through its vibrant network, the CDP facilitates and supports dialogue and the sharing of best practices in the use of community data.
