The Fact-Finder’s Guide to Local & Regional Data

March 21, 2018 • 1 min read

This extensive  document was prepared as a project of the Rural Ontario Institute under the Measuring Rural Community

Vitality initiative. This Guide focuses on sources of data that are available from Canadian federal departments and agencies, including 2011 census data. The objective was to document the data from federal agencies that are available for geographic areas within a province; some of these areas are relatively small, lower-tier municipal geographies and others are larger economic regions. These sources of data may be particularly relevant to rural areas across the Province who are looking to conduct community social and economic planning.
