Description
Statistics Canada was established in 1918 as the Dominion Bureau of Statistics. Its name was changed in 1971 to Statistics Canada, which is why Canadians know it as “Stats Can.” The agency falls under the direction of Industry Canada. Stats Can is mandated by the federal Statistics Act to “collect, compile, analyse, abstract and publish statistical information relating to the commercial, industrial, financial, social, economic and general activities and condition of the people of Canada.” It publishes around 900 titles per year from the main office in Ottawa and smaller regional offices across the country. In this article, I will present you with a Canadian reference librarian’s view of access to Stats Can information.
