Nipissing University is now home to a Statistics Canada Research Data Centre (RDC), a high-level, secure network and data lab that provides researchers with local access to Statistics Canada’s confidential, large-scale survey data. Researchers can now visit Nipissing University to access data collected from a long list of surveys to help them explore a wide variety of Canadian social and economic issues on education, work, aging, literacy and numeracy, health, mental health and well-being, and more.

“This funding is a boon to our faculty, our students and our local community. It enhances our capacity to conduct research exploring a wide variety of Canadian social and economic issues on a range of topics.”
Mike DeGagné
President and Vice-Chancellor of Nipissing University
