Consortia members are allowed to share the Community Data Program data with a consultant provided that both parties (Member organization and the consultant) sign a file sharing agreement. This agreement will have to be provided by the CDP. To begin this procedure email us the following information:
- Name and email address of the Consortium Lead
- Name and email address of the consultant
- Name of the project that the consultant will be working on
- Date at which the consultant will no longer require access to the data catalogue
Once that information is provided, we can work with you to enable temporary access to the files.

An adult in each household was asked to complete and return the questionnaire online or by mail to the Statistics Canada Data Processing Centre. There are short and long forms of the questionnaire. See the Census Dictionary for more information.

This is a factor of the dimensions included in the table you are looking at. Statistics Canada provides some information here about the effect of the 20% sample, but there is also the case of the "base population" for any given dimension. For example, data tables on the topic of housing are usually based on the total population of people in private households, the total population for these data would exclude all institutionalized individuals and therefore not be the same as the general population count used in the basic profile.
Statistics Canada provides an entire guide on how to properly cite their data, you can access it here.
This depends on the source of the data. A good place to start is on the Community Data & Catalogue Resources page. If you can't trace the source and find information to satisfy your query through there try contact us: email@example.com for more details.
