Today, Statistics Canada is launching the Data Science Network for the Federal Public Service (powered by StatCan stewardship). The Network provides a dynamic space for data science enthusiasts to collaborate, share information, learn about the latest tools, and more!

The Network will facilitate data science capacity building and the sharing of data science methods across the Government of Canada, which will allow the public service as a whole to benefit from automation and new data sources. Canadians will also benefit as the products and services they use are improved through efficient, cutting-edge technologies.

Statistics Canada is pleased to launch the Network, and looks forward to partnering with other departments as it continues to grow.

The Network supports the Statistics Canada Data Strategy and the Report to the Clerk of the Privy Council: A Data Strategy Roadmap for the Federal Public Service.

Users can find more information on data science at Statistics Canada by visiting the new Data Science Centre.


The Data Science Network for the Federal Public Service and the Data Science Centre are now available.
