IMDB pilot project in the RDCs: call for proposals

In order to support the extended use of the Longitudinal Immigration Database (IMDB) in the RDCs, Statistics Canada is launching a pilot project to address feasibility issues, including further testing of the confidentiality vetting rules and testing of the IT resources necessary to transfer and analyze these large data files. This dataset combines linked administrative immigration and tax data files. It is a comprehensive source of data on the socio-economic outcomes of the immigrant tax filer population in Canada. Researchers are invited to submit proposals by December 22, 2017. For all details, please click here.

Indigenous Policy Research

The report summarizing the discussion during the policy research workshop on Indigenous issues that the Network held last May in Ottawa is now available. This workshop culminated a two-year partnership with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada to support policy relevant research using data from the 2012 cycle of the Aboriginal Peoples Survey (APS). The workshop gathered approximately 65 invitees to discuss the results of these research projects focusing on Indigenous education, employment, and health, as well as the state of the data landscape relative to Indigenous Peoples in Canada. “Ethics,” “respect,” “collaboration,” “synergy,” and “strength” capture the main message from the workshop. Happy reading!
