Accessing our data

We will generally provide our complete analysis and data upon request. We are unable to provide data where that they are subject to disclosure restrictions under section 79.5 of the Parliament of Canada Act, where we purchased the data and they are subject to a confidentiality agreement, or where it would be too difficult to provide the data in a usable form. When we receive information from government departments, we can’t disclose it unless the disclosure is essential for the performance of the PBO’s mandate.
