Information

Purpose

The survey collects financial data from coal mine operations in Canada.

Confidentiality

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. The confidentiality provisions of the Statistics Act are not affected by either the Access to Information Act or any other legislation. Therefore, for example, the Canada Revenue Agency cannot access identifiable survey records from Statistics Canada.

Information from this survey will be used for statistical purposes only and will be published in aggregate form only.

Data-sharing agreements

To reduce response burden and to ensure uniform statistics, Statistics Canada has entered into data sharing agreements with provincial and territorial statistical agencies and other government organizations for the sharing of data from this survey. These organizations must keep the data confidential and use them only for statistical purposes. Statistics Canada will only share data from this survey with those organizations that have demonstrated a requirement to use the data.

Agreements to share information from this survey exist under Section 11 of the Statistics Act with the statistical agencies of Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and the Yukon, regarding business establishments located or operating in their respective jurisdiction. These statistical agencies have the legislative authority to collect this information on their own or jointly with Statistics Canada. Their legislation also contains the same confidentiality protection and outlines similar penalties for disclosure of confidential information as the federal Statistics Act.

Agreements to share information from this survey exist under Section 12 of the Statistics Act with the statistical agencies of Prince Edward Island, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, the Saskatchewan Industry and Resources, the Alberta Department of Energy, the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines, Natural Resources Canada and Environment Canada. For agreements with provincial and territorial government organizations, the shared data will be limited to information pertaining to business establishments located or operating within the jurisdiction of the respective province or territory.

Under Section 12, you may refuse to share your information with any of these organizations by writing a letter of objection to the Chief Statistician and returning it with the completed questionnaire. Please specify the organization with which you do not want to share your data.

Note that there is no right of refusal with respect to sharing the data with Saskatchewan Industry and Resources. The information is collected in Saskatchewan under the Statistics Act and on behalf of the Department pursuant to The Oil and Gas Conservation Act and Regulations, 1985 (Saskatchewan) and the Mineral Resources Act (Saskatchewan).

Record linkage

To enhance the data from this survey, Statistics Canada may combine it with information from other surveys or from administrative sources.

Security of emails and faxes
