Web Scraping

Web Scraping is a powerful tool for collecting real-time, locally specific data. Has your organization used web scraping to collect data? Let us know! We would like to put together a session on the power of web scraping for local-level data collection and would love to hear what you are doing locally!

New Data Products

The Community Data Program regularly receives new data products. Below is a snapshot of a few products that have been recently added to the catalogue. See what else is available by visiting the data catalogue yourself! 

New Tableau Dashboards

Following each census release, the CDP Team developed a Tableau dashboard. Each dashboard contains 2021 census data for all of Canada and enables a user to access new census data quickly.

What can I do with the Longitudinal Immigration Database [IMDB]?

The Longitudinal Immigration Database [IMDB] is a comprehensive source of data that plays a key role in the understanding of the economic behaviours of immigrants. It is the only annual Canadian dataset that allows users to study the characteristics of immigrants to Canada at the time of admission and their economic outcomes and regional (inter-provincial) mobility over a time span of more than 40 years. This Webinar aims to help inform users of what is the IMDB, its analytical capacity, and its publicly available data products. Mike Ditor, Senior Analyst at the Community Data Program (CDP), will also provide a brief overview of the custom IMBD products available exclusively through the CDP. This webinar is suitable for all levels.

Date: Tuesday, September 27th, 2022, 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm ET

Ask a Community Data Expert

We invite CDP users to contact us with their data questions. These can go beyond basic questions on finding and opening data products. We understand that many users do not have the capacity to work with our catalogue or make use of Beyond 2020 and IVT files. Where we can we will do our best to provide you with a data table in Excel format for the geographies and indicators you need.
