Data is a powerful storyteller. In particular, census data depicts Canada’s changing mosaic—giving us facts on where we came from, where we are and where we are heading. Canadians depend on key socioeconomic trends and analysis from the census to make important decisions that affect their families, their neighbourhoods and their businesses.
