Centre for Municipal and Local Data


Your municipality, your statistics

Municipalities represent the order of government closest to people's lives. From large urban municipalities to smaller, rural or agricultural areas, it is crucial that all levels of government collaborate more closely to ensure data and key indicators on economic, socioeconomic and health impacts are accessible and address the needs of our diverse communities.

As part of an ongoing partnership with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and in the context of the Disaggregated Data Action Plan, Statistics Canada is bringing data to municipalities. Functions of the Centre for Municipal and Local Data include: a data catalogue for access to data pertinent to municipalities, such as the integration of census data, as well as statistics on housing, health, crime, and more; an experimental municipal finance dashboard, which currently allows comparisons across select Canadian municipalities on standard financial indicators, including those relating to infrastructure spending; and a mapping function, which displays a set of key indicators geographically and through data visualisations.

The Municipal Mapping Application is no longer available. To find statistical products by geography, please use the Geography - Find information by region or area.

Together, let's continue to Think Local!
