Our Webinar

The increasing digitalization of the Canadian economy has many aspects that are being considered at Statistics Canada. The digitalization of the economy presents new challenges to the statistical system but also presents new opportunities for data collection and the implementation of statistical methods that were not previously possible. Statistics Canada is currently working towards identifying data gaps that have emerged and finding solutions to meet these data gaps through both traditional survey methods and innovative new solutions. This webinar will address some of these challenges that exist in this new era of measurement and propose some of the steps the organization is taking toward meeting them.

Our Webinar
Our news has been filled with both the personal and economic consequences of catastrophes of all types, weather and possibly man-made, for Canadian home owners, insurance companies and the government. The Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR) focuses on education and research about harm reduction associated with water damage, extreme wind, urban earthquake, wildfires near the urban interface, and hail. Mitigation efforts include changes to the urban environment, buildings and the appropriate use of insurance to finance risk.
