CRDCN 2019 National Conference

October 24-25, 2019 - Halifax, Nova Scotia

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.
