The Canadian Research Data Centre Network (CRDCN) is a network of data centres that promote and facilitate research by granting researchers access to Statistics Canada microdata. This program is a joint initiative by Statistics Canada, SSHRC, CIHR and university partners.
RDCs are secure facilities operated by Statistics Canada employees and are governed by provisions under the Statistics Act. In order for researchers to be granted access to RDC data, they must pass security clearance requirements, become a ‘deemed employee’ of Statistics Canada, and adhere to confidentiality guidelines when working in the RDC.
There are a number of RDCs located across the country, providing researchers access to Statistics Canada microdata. RDCs are an optimal locations for professors, graduate students, and even external researchers to access confidential Statistics Canada data for theses, reports, and publications.
The Nipissing RDC is a branch of the Toronto RDC and is located on the Nipissing University campus in North Bay, Ontario. At this branch RDC, a Statistical Assistant oversees day to day operations while working in partnership with an Analyst located in Toronto.
