CRDCN 2019 National Conference

October 24-25, 2019 - Halifax, Nova Scotia

This year, our annual conference will be hosted by the Atlantic RDC, and Casey Warman is the chair of the organizing committtee. The call for proposals is now open!

Our world is rapidly changing and advances in data allows us to understand and meet the challenges of an evolving world.  Empirical research is one of the most valuable tools in creating meaningful policy that improves the lives of Canadians. The unprecedented growth of administrative data in recent years allows us to answer new, fundamental questions.  From neo-natal development to those entering retirement, questions about health and well-being are critical to all Canadians, of every age, in every region of the country.  We want to highlight the advances in data made available to researchers and how it is being used to create ground-breaking new research.

We invite proposals for regular or poster presentations on topics relevant to health and well-being, using survey and administrative data, but non-thematic proposals will also be considered. Data-related and methodological papers are also welcome. We encourage you to include a discussion about the policy implications of your results. See top right-hand side column to submit your proposal. The deadline is June 14.


Preconference workshops will be offered on Wednesday, October 23.
