Research & Statistics

The Research & Statistics section presents the latest research and statistics relevant to programming at the Department of Community Services. Data from external agencies and research organizations such as Statistics Canada, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, think tanks, and others are presented to provide a picture of the environment in which the Department’s programs operate. Every effort is made to present the latest relevant social and economic trends, and all data is updated annually or as it becomes available.

Additionally, administrative data about the Department’s programs will be made publicly available as soon as possible in order to provide clients, other government staff, community organizations, researchers, and the general public with the most reliable, factual, accurate, and timely information about the department, its programs, and its clients.
