The Pseudo-Household Demographic Distribution is a geospatial representative distribution of demographic data (population and households) derived from the Canadian Census from Statistics Canada. Demography is distributed within Dissemination Blocks along roadways, providing a more accurate geospatial distribution while still aligning with published Census geographies.
Pseudo-household demographics are currently used to calculate broadband Internet service availability, but are equally applicable to other disciplines requiring a spatial distribution of households or population.
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (the Commission) annually collects financial and subscription information on Internet services. In addition, information on the availability of broadband Internet services is collected in partnership with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED). Also, the Commission conducts research into the data requirements of certain Internet-based audio and video applications. This data is mostly broken into three groups:
- Incumbent TSPs.
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (hereafter, the Commission) annually collects financial and subscription information on Internet services. In addition, information on the availability of broadband Internet services is collected in partnership with Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED). Also, the Commission conducts research into the data requirements of certain Internet-based audio and video applications. This report presents financial and subscription information over 5 year period from 2013 to 2017.
This table shows the percentage of Canadian households in large, medium, and small population centres, as well as in rural areas, that can access 25 Mbps broadband services in each province and territory. Small population centres are considered to have populations of between 1,000 and 29, 000. Medium population centres are considered to have populations of between 30,000 and 99,999. Large population centres are considered to have populations greater than 100,000.
The Hexagonal Grid of Canada is a geospatial grid of 516,322 individual hexagons covering the landmass of Canada. Each Hexagon is approximately 25square kilometres in size. Hexagons which span Provincial or Territorial boundaries have been split on the boundary, allowing for per Province or per Territory analysis and/or mapping. This data is based upon the historical Spectrum Management Grid Cells which were previously used by Innovation Science and Economic Development Canada for Spectrum licensing and management activities.
The Southampton Island Integrated Geoscience project was launched in 2007 to update geoscience knowledge and allow the island’s mineral and energy resource potential to be assessed in a modern context. Accordingly, broadband and long period magnetotelluric data were acquired along profiles targeted to contribute an understanding of the deep lithosphere and crustal features.
The collection of geolocated placenames in Canada represents a consistent and comprehensive distribution of named places across Canada. Named places include large and small cities, villages, First Nations Communities, Small Hamlets etc.
This data draws from public information maintained by Natural Resources Canada as part of the Canadian Geographical Names Database and public information maintained by Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada.
The set of geolocated placenames is currently used for the administration of rural broadband Internet contribution programs, but is equally applicable for other mapping or modelling purposes where a comprehensive set of geolocated placenames across Canada is required.
This publication summarizes the status of the retail mobile sector and provides insight to the level of competition by comparing various metrics of the top 3 mobile service providers, in terms of revenue and subscriber markets share, against the other mobile service providers in Canada. In 2020, the Commission revamped the data collections for the mobile sector to capture mobile services in three distinct categories: 1. Mobile phone 2. Mobile broadband and 3.
The MODIS surface albedo dataset was produced by the Canada Center for Remote Sensing (CCRS), Natural Resources Canada. The dataset represents the solar shortwave broadband surface albedo and it is at a 10-day interval covering the entire Canadian landmass as well as northern USA, Alaska, and the Greenland. The dataset was derived from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) onboard the TERRA satellite which provides a global coverage every 1-2 days in 36 spectral bands ranging from visible to infrared and to thermal wavelengths between 405 and 14,385 nm, and was available since 2000. For the estimation of surface albedo, the first seven spectral bands of B1 to B7 ranging from 459 nm to 2155 nm were used.
Seasonal mean current speed from the British Columbia continental margin model (BCCM) were calculated as the root mean square of the zonal (U) and meridional (V) velocities and averaged over the 1981 to 2010 period to create seasonal mean climatology of the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone. Current speeds at up to forty-six linearly interpolated vertical levels from surface to 2400 m and at the sea bottom are included. Spring months were defined as April to June, summer months were defined as July to September, fall months were defined as October to December, and winter months were defined as January to March. The data available here contain raster layers of seasonal current speed climatology for the Canadian Pacific Exclusive Economic Zone at 3 km spatial resolution and 47 vertical levels.
