Open and free access to Canadian statistics

Statistics Canada recently opened up their CANSIM data to public, making it freely available, under the Statistics Canada Open License Agreement. OC Library is transitioning from its subscription version of CANSIM to the publicly available database. You’ll notice that all CANSIM links in Library resources now point to the publicly available database.

Visit OC Library’s Data & Statistics guide to see how CANSIM data can support your business-related research.

In other Canadian statistical news, Statistics Canada will cancel E-STAT effective June 30, 2012. It will remain accessible until June 30, 2013.
