This guest blog post is provided by Statistics Canada which is responsible for producing statistics that help Canadians better understand their country — its population, resources, economy, society and culture.

Managing and expanding your business involves making decisions based on reliable, objective and up-to-date information. Statistics Canada, a respected worldwide leader in statistics, now offers an additional way for you to access to the information you need.

Statistics Canada has a new YouTube channel with socially and economically relevant videos on topics such as:

  • The Consumer Price Index and how it affects your business
  • Easy-to-understand definitions of statistical concepts
  • Information on the 2016 Census
  • How manufacturing and the retail supply chain impact your business

The emerging theme in the video Around the world and back is that good things come to those who help others. It's a feel-good video that sheds light on how Canadian businesses can access solid, useful data. This video was created with the invaluable assistance of our international collaborators.

In Statistics: The Invisible Made Visible, experts in journalism and business, academia and international affairs highlight the undeniable value that statistics can bring to your business as a participant in the Canadian and international economies.

Tutorial for businesses explains how to find census data at the geographic level and how to manipulate those data to fit your needs. The tutorial only scratches the surface; find more information that your business can use on Statistics Canada's census page.

Subscribing to Statistics Canada's YouTube channel is easy. As soon as a new video is published, you will immediately receive an email notification. We hope to count you among our new subscribers.
