Phoenix Strategic Perspectives Inc. (Phoenix SPI) was commissioned by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) to conduct a telephone survey of Canadians on privacy-related issues.
The OPC’s mandate to protect and promote privacy rights includes promoting awareness and understanding of privacy issues by the Canadian public. In support of this, the OPC conducts public opinion research with the general population every two years. This year’s research was designed to explore privacy issues that fall under the OPC’s four strategic privacy priorities: economics of personal information; government surveillance; reputation and privacy; and the body as information.
These priorities …
The Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin was designed primarily as a reference volume documenting the subsurface geology of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. This GIS dataset is one of a collection of shapefiles representing part of Chapter 10 of the Atlas, Devonian Elk Point Group of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, Figure 7, Distribution of Lower Givetian Strata. Shapefiles were produced from archived digital files created by the Alberta Geological Survey in the mid-1990s, and edited in 2005-06 to correct, attribute and consolidate the data into single files by feature type and by figure.
All available bathymetry and related information for Laurier Lake were collected and hard copy maps digitized where necessary. The data were validated against more recent data (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission 'SRTM' imagery and Indian Remote Sensing 'IRS' imagery) and corrected where necessary. The published data set contains the lake bathymetry formatted as an Arc ascii grid. Bathymetric contours and the boundary polygon are available as shapefiles.
The following tables contain data on administrative monetary penalties (AMPs) issued by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) as part of compliance actions, as permitted under the Nuclear Safety and Control Act. In the current tables, which contains details on companies and individuals, data more than two years old is removed as per CNSC policy in conjunction with the annual update to the CSNC’s Regulatory actions Web page (https://www.cnsc-ccsn.gc.ca/eng/acts-and-regulations/regulatory-action/index.cfm). The historical dataset does not contain this identifying information, and serves to illustrate trends in penalties issued over the longer term.
Drillhole information was compiled by the Alberta Geological Survey from public mineral assessment file reports for 397 holes drilled in or near the Athabasca Basin in Northeastern Alberta. The work was done in support of the ExTech IV project led by the Geological Survey of Canada.
An awareness campaign was developed to raise the general level of understanding of this issue; and advertising took place in the Spring, Summer and Fall of 2009, with the fall wave ending on October 25, 2009.

This is an approximated visualization of the School Authority Unorganized information that is currently available on the Alberta Education public website (https://education.alberta.ca/boundary-maps/school-jurisdiction-maps/everyone/view-and-print-maps). The information has been informed by Ministerial Orders and is presented in a mapping format.
Gauging public opinion on important issues to the department is essential in the development of policy, programs, and communication activities. To this end, HRSDC commissioned Corporate Research Associates, Inc. (CRA), to conduct public opinion research on core mandate issues as well as new and emerging issues. This study sought to examine three emerging issues (i.e., Social Partnerships, the Retirement Income System, and Persisting Unemployment), with the goal of utilizing the collected survey information as a means of informing policy direction as well as communications regarding these priority areas. To achieve these objectives, 1500 telephone interviews were conducted with Canadians aged …
This dataset is associated with the article authored by Christine Martineau, Julien Beguin, Armand Séguin and David Paré " Cumulative effects of disturbances on soil nutrients: predominance of antagonistic short-term responses to the salvage logging of insect-killed stands". It comprises 24 plots (experimental units) located both in Montmorency Forest and in the Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier (47°19' N, 71°09' W). The study contained four different levels of disturbance treatment (defoliated, logged, defoliated and logged, and undisturbed controls). Each level of treatment was replicated six times. The database includes information on the FH layer and on the top 0-15cm mineral …
This dataset is the result of two surveys, conducted in August and November 2018. Departments and Agencies were asked to indicate whether they were compliant with the Direction on Enabling Access to Web Services. This Policy Implementation Notice instructs departments to enable access to web services on GC electronic networks for unclassified information.
The dataset contains a list of departments and their self-assessed compliance with the Direction. The dataset also includes information on the availability of specific social media and productivity websites within each department. This list is a set of examples based on popular service providers; all websites …
