Research Data Centres

A Research Data Centre (RDC) is a university-based laboratory, staffed by a Statistics Canada Analyst, which offers researchers: Secure access to confidential microdata – Statistics Canada census and surveys, plus a growing range of administrative data, in addition to fully-equipped workstations, statistical software and technical support.

There are more than 30 RDCs on campuses across the country. Below you’ll find a complete listing of RDCs. Click the name of the RDC to find out how many workstations it has, its hours of operation, staff contact information, and a list of related publications produced by researchers using that RDC.

Most independent academic research can be performed at no cost to the researcher. More information about accessing Microdata is available here.
