This government’s deep cuts to Statistics Canada have left economists and other policy makers without the data they need for evidence-led decision making. For example, economists say they don’t have the data they need about the labour market or residential housing. The cancellation of the Long Form Census has left policy makers without demographic statistics they need. Since 2010 more than 1,000 Statscan jobs have been cut.
