Data-driven Insights on the Black Communities in Canada

February 24 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

In the past, StatCan has organized half-day events held in different Canadian cities, discussing the uses of statistics in various fields.

This year, A Data Story will be held virtually. This 2-hour virtual event is a wonderful opportunity for Statistics Canada to connect and collaborate with you, our data users and stakeholders, in order to better understand your evolving data needs.

In honour of Black History Month, the event will highlight StatCan’s data on the Black Communities and will be open to all Government of Canada employees as well as the general public.

The event will feature remarks by the Chief Statistician, Anil Arora, keynote address from Assistant Chief Statisticians Lynn Barr-Telford and Greg Peterson, followed by a panel discussion with panelists representing Black Community organizations in Canada.
