A modern framework: Breaking new ground

A modern framework: Breaking new ground


At Statistics Canada we’ve been collecting
data for more than a century, and our methods are always evolving. In our digital age, your information needs
are growing. That’s why we’re working with experts
from around the world to strengthen how we protect your privacy, while continuing to
provide the insights you need from your national statistical agency. We’re doing this by creating a new methodology
framework—the first of its kind— to meet these mounting demands. And we’re creating it with you in mind. To uphold the confidentiality you expect and
deserve. We call it the Necessity and Proportionality
Framework. It will assess data sensitivity and gathering
in a more integrated way while ensuring the data needs of Canadians are met. When we plan surveys, our experts work to
assess the volume and sources of data with the need to reduce your response burden. To produce an accurate portrait of our country,
and with fewer surveys! It will also make our approach to collecting
data more transparent. And, it will ensure that statistical values,
such as privacy and confidentiality, continue to be upheld. It’s a new way to gather and provide information
to society, so that we can all make better decisions—together.
