    While Canada has embraced digital technologies rapidly and broadly over the past two decades, there is no doubt that the adoption of digital technologies has been amplified and accelerated as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. This article compares the economic performance of sectors where digital inputs have been used more intensively in the production process (digitally-intensive sectors) to that of remaining sectors (non digitally-intensive sectors).

    As technology continues to evolve, it is more important now than ever to promote and strengthen security for individuals, governments and businesses to mitigate and prevent complex security threats. As a result of our new digital reality, the nature of crime, and the ways in which law enforcement and emergency response agencies work, are also evolving.

    While technology has the power to enable or facilitate crime, it can also be used as an effective tool to prevent, detect and respond to crime and other emergencies, and contribute to evidence-based decision-making in public safety.

    This panel discussion addresses the changing landscape of community safety, and discuss the role data continues to play in countering cybercrime in our new digital era.

It presents information on how businesses are exposed to cyber security risks and threats, the impact cybercrime had on business operations in 2017, the reporting practices of businesses and the types of security measures businesses invest in to protect against cybercrime. Where appropriate, the article compares data from the Canadian Survey of Cyber Security and Cybercrime to the information collected through United Kingdom's Cyber Security Breaches Survey, 2018, to understand whether the experience of Canadian businesses is similar to that of UK Businesses.

    Major changes were made to the data collection process for the 2006 Census. One of those changes was the Internet response option, which was offered to all private households in Canada. Nearly one in five households chose to complete and return the questionnaire on-line. In addition, a new method of promoting Internet response was tested via the Internet Response Promotion (IRP) Study. The new approach proved very effective at increasing the on-line response rate. Planning for the 2011 Census, which is under way, calls for the use of a wave collection strategy, and wave 1 would be the IRP method. This paper provides an overview of Internet data collection in the 2006 Census - evaluations, results, lessons learned - and the methodology that will be used in the next census in 2011.

    The adoption and use of information and communications technologies (ICTs) by individuals and businesses in part determines a country's ability to participate successfully in the global information economy. As the Internet is an essential component of ICT infrastructure, its use has become a key hallmark of this participation. In order to situate Internet use both geographically and over time, this study compares 2005 and 2007 Canadian use rates with those of other selected countries, as well as among Canadian provinces.

    This report describes the Electronic Publications Pilot (EPP) which was conducted to gather knowledge on how library staff and their clients are adjusting to the Internet. The pilot was conducted from September 1996 to September 1997 as a joint initiative of Statistics Canada and the Depository Services Program (DSP), in partnership with the depository library community. The objective of the pilot was to assess the impact of replacing print publications with electronic equivalents via the Internet in DSP libraries. This objective was based on an assumption that the electronic medium will complement print rather than replace it entirely and that departments will continue to produce some print publications in the future. The major conclusions of the pilot cover resources and training, web site feedback, selection of publications for conversion to electronic format, web site access and security, publication functionality and access and archiving.
