Note of appreciation
Standards of service to the public


The demographic information presented in Canadian Demographics at a Glance come from different existing products published primarily by Demography Division in Statistics Canada. I would like to thank the authors of these studies and reports without whom this document could not have been produced.

I would also like to thank Eric Caron Malenfant and Samuel Vézina, editors of this publication, for selecting and preparing the demographic information included in this document, for updating the indicators, and for managing the overall production of the document.

Finally, I would like to thank all the persons without whom the document would not be what it is today: Rosemary Bender, Pamela White, Réjean Lachapelle, Johanne Denis, Jean Bergeron and Anne Milan who have revised the manuscript on successive drafts; the dissemination team (Janie Saumure, Norman Sherman et Liliane Lanoie); Carol D'Aoust, for the preparation of tables and charts, for his support with the updates, for editing work and for his dedication to this project.
