    Description:

    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.

    Description:

    Since 2016, Internet use rates among Canadians aged 15 to 64 have reached near-saturation (97.2%) levels. However, the diffusion of information and communications technology (ICT), including the Internet, has proceeded at a much slower pace among Canadians aged 65 and older. Given that Canada is an aging society, knowing about the factors associated with Internet use among seniors is crucial for ensuring their access to it. This study uses four cycles of the General Social Survey (2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016) to describe changes in Canadian seniors’ rates of Internet use, and examines the sociodemographic factors associated with such use.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 11-534-X
    Description:

    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.
