Government Data

Statistics Canada has just released a new resource for students: the 2021 Census Postsecondary Research Kit. This user-friendly guide explains what kinds of data students will find through StatsCan, examples of census data being used in research, links to Census resources and how to cite StatsCan products using APA! There's also an even more in-depth PDF guide!

Many municipalities make open data available. To find these data sets, search open data and the name of the municipality. A few examples are City of Vancouver Open Data Portal and Burnaby's Open Data Portal.
