Confidentiality

The Statistics Act protects the confidentiality of information collected by Statistics Canada.

Statistics Canada is prohibited by law from releasing any information it collects which could identify any person, business, or organization, unless consent has been given by the respondent or as permitted by the Statistics Act.

For this survey, there are data sharing agreements with Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and the Yukon. Shared data will be limited to information from the respective province or territory. Each provincial or territorial Statistics Act includes the same provisions for confidentiality and penalties for disclosure of
information as the Statistics Act.
