The Community Data Program’s transition to CCEDNet

The Community Data Program has now transitioned to a new home with the Canadian Community Economic Development Network (CCEDNet). Since its beginnings with the Canadian Council on Social Development (CCSD) in the 1990s, the CDP has focused on providing access to socio-economic data to improve well-being in communities across Canada. We thank the CCSD for many years of support and for growing the CDP to be a strong network of professionals. The transition to our new host will allow the CDP to thrive and continue to provide access to quality neighbourhood level data. We look forward to getting to know CCEDNet better in the coming months.

Data News


New data and updates in the catalogue

2016 Census tables Miscellaneous tables Custom tabulations - CUSP poverty tables
As part of a collaboration with the Community Data Program Analytics Team, the Canadian Urban Sustainability Practitioners (CUSP) network has provided the program with a rich set of data tables on energy poverty in Canada. The tables look at home energy spending as a proportion of after-tax household income and cross-tabulate demographic household concepts (e.g., visible minority household) with housing and income data. The project and the tables will be presented in an upcoming webinar on November 12th (see Webinars).

Take a look at Schedule B, updated for data to be purchased this program year (2019-2020).

Region of Peel Community Snapshots: 2016 Ward Profiles and 20-Year Outcomes Progress Dashboard

The 2016 Region of Peel Ward Profiles is an interactive tool that provides information and data on the Region of Peel. It allows users to examine and compare Peel’s wards according to variables relating to six factors:
  • Demographics
  • Employment and income
  • Housing
  • Ethnicity and immigration
  • Language
  • Transportation and education
The data is displayed in easily comprehensible graphs and comes from the 2016 Census and Long Form.

The Region of Peel 20-Year Outcomes Progress Dashboard measures and displays Peel’s progress towards important long-term outcomes. Progress is measured through over 30 different indicators, with three areas of focus; living, thriving and leading. For each indicator, the Progress Dashboard shows whether or not it is trending in the desired direction.
