In the context of the rapidly-evolving situation around the novel coronavirus (also known as COVID-19), Statistics Canada remains committed to providing Canadians with the information they need. The agency plans to continue releasing data from programs identified as 'mission-critical' to the proper functioning of the Government of Canada, and to the Canadian economy and society. All other data releases will be postponed until further notice.

The agency will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves, and may further adapt its publishing activities as needed.
