Coronavirus Updates:

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want you to know that we are taking every precautionary measure that we can to ensure the wellbeing of our researchers, staff, volunteers, partners and local communities. We care deeply about the people and communities we serve.

Statistics Canada and CRDCN are abiding by the edicts coming from various levels of government and partner institutions. The health of RDC staff and researchers is paramount as Canada tries to contain the effects of Covid-19.

As a result, all RDCs will cease to operate until further notice to comply with the preventative measures recommended by public health authorities.

CRDCN central staff are now working remotely. Business continuity plans are in effect and we will be working with Statistics Canada and local Academic Directors to assess and help mitigate the impact on our research community.

The CRDCN Board met on March 24 via videoconference and a briefing has been set up for Academic Directors. We will follow up with more detailed communication as the situation unfolds.

We acknowledge the challenge this situation has raised for our researchers as this is a busy time of year with important deadlines, as such, we have created an issue letter available for download that you might use as needed. If you have any further questions or require further accommodations, please email us at [email protected]
