Where to access data

The numbers of Research Data Centres (RDCs) and branches has grown steadily over the year, and researchers now have access to over 30 facilities across the country.

  • Atlantic RDC

    The Atlantic RDC (ARDC) is an inter-university facility serving researchers from Dalhousie University, Mount St. Vincent University, St. Francis Xavier University, St. Mary's University, and Acadia University. The centre was officially opened on May 28th, 2002.

    In addition to offering a facility to access and process data, ARDC regularly hosts methodological workshops, brown bag lunches, graduate-level courses in social analysis of complex survey data, and seminars on a wide array of topics.

  • NB RDC (New Brunswick RDC)

    The New Brunswick Research Data Centre (NB-RDC) was one of the first RDCs to commence operations, in 2001. More than 250 researchers have accessed it since then. The NB-RDC enjoys a close relationship with its partner the New Brunswick Social Policy Research Network as well as with the Government of New Brunswick.

    Branches are now open at the Université de Moncton and Memorial University. The Saint John campus is home to a satellite RDC.

  • NB RDC - Memorial branch

    Memorial University's Research Data Centre (RDC) opened in the summer of 2013. Located in Room 3017C of the Queen Elizabeth II Library, the RDC is a branch of the New Brunswick RDC and provides researchers with access to Statistics Canada population and household survey microdata in a secure university setting.

  • NB RDC - Moncton branch

    The facility, located on the campus of the University of Moncton, was opened in 2012 and is affiliated with the New Brunswick RDC (NB-RDC).

  • NB RDC - Saint John satellite

    A satellite campus of UNB, UNB-SJ opened a satellite RDC of the NBRDC in 2019. The satellite shares a space with the NB-IRDT (New Brunswick Institute for Research Data and Training). For more information about the IRDT, consult their website.
