Canadian Statistical Geospatial Explorer Hub

The Canadian Statistical Geospatial Explorer empowers users to discover Statistics Canada's geo‑enabled data down to the smallest level of detail available, the dissemination area. Users can find, explore then export data in various formats to use in their workflows. Users can also customize the map and change basemaps (satellite imagery, topography, etc.) to view data in a different context.
