Our data sets

Information about RDC data holdings can be found on the Canadian Research Data Centre Network's Data page.

See our Data Access page for important information on the distinctions between the different modes of access to Statistics Canada data.

University of Toronto researchers will want to ensure that their data needs cannot be met by either the University of Toronto's Data Library Service, University of Toronto's Map and Data Library or the CHASS Data Centre before applying to conduct research at the Toronto RDC.

York University researchers can check York University's Library Data & Statistics web site for public use data. Ryerson University researchers will want to consult Ryerson's Geospatial Map and Data Centre.

How to apply

Prospective researchers must submit a proposal to conduct research at any of the Research Data Centres.

Please consult Statistics Canada's application process and guidelines page which outlines the steps required to submit a proposal.

Some projects will be charged fees. Refer to the Toronto RDC's Project Fees page to determine if fees are applicable to your project.
