  • CRDCN researchers will have free access to Esri Canada’s GIS technology

    We are pleased to announce that Esri Canada will provide researchers in all RDCs free access to its ArcGIS technology. ArcGIS is a complete geographic information system (GIS) that delivers powerful geoprocessing tools enabling advanced spatial visualization of a broad array of data. It will allow researchers to conduct different types of analyses and to overlay various types of data on a digital map, including health, socio-demographic and household survey data, allowing them to quickly produce high-quality print and online maps to share research results with the public. Esri Canada’s pledge amounts to a donation of more than $5 million to the Network. Read the news release to learn more.

  • Appointment at the CRDCN

    We are delighted to announce that Byron G. Spencer, Professor Emeritus of Economics at McMaster University, has been appointed as the first Research Program Director of the CRDCN.

In this new capacity, Byron will initiate, facilitate, and encourage collaboration among academic researchers, policy makers, and data producers.
