Who better to help count the 150 candles on Canada's birthday cake than the agency that has been telling this country's story in numbers for more than a century?

This month's edition of the StatCan Blog, "Telling Canada's story in numbers," looks at the role Statistics Canada is playing in marking the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

The agency has a diverse lineup set for 2017, including a speaker series, special social media postings, contests for young people, and online activities. All of these will help illuminate Canada's past and present.

You can't have a party without pictures either. This year, Statistics Canada will release statistical snapshots of every facet of this country as it publishes the results of the 2016 Census of Population.


The January 2017 edition of the StatCan Blog, "Telling Canada's story in numbers," is now available.
