CRDCN 2018 National Conference

Building an Inclusive, Prosperous and Healthy Canada: What Can We Learn From the Data?

October 18 & 19, 2018 - Hamilton, Ontario

Evidence-based policy requires evidence.  Over the past 18 years, the CRDCN has provided researchers with high-quality data to help inform policy-making designed to improve the life of Canadians. This year, the annual Network conference invited papers from those who have used an RDC or other large-scale survey or administrative data sources to improve our understanding of Canada's diverse society.  With permission, several presentations are available below.
