Canadian Census Data from the Community Information Database (CID)

Added By allimaupin

The Community Information Database (CID) is a free internet-based resource developed to provide communities, researchers, and governments with access to consistent and reliable socio-economic and demographic data and information for all communities across Canada.

The CID was developed by the Government of Canada’s Rural Secretariat in collaboration with the provinces and territories, other government departments, and community groups.

The CID provides:

  • Access to over 500 pieces of data about your community or region, including: population, education, income, employment, families, and much more.
  • An interactive map for displaying and accessing data.
  • A tool for you to learn more about rural Canada.
