Survey of Innovation and Business Strategy


Is there a PUMF or any other information available for the “Survey of Innovation and Business Strategy,” which was last released in 2010. I have a researcher looking for any data she can get on business innovation. There are a few tables on the Statcan, but is there anything else?


We typically only have access to aggregate data for Business Surveys. It is accessible through The Canadian Centre for Data Development and Economic Research (CDER). CDER is located within Statistics Canada's Ottawa facilities on the 18th Floor of the R.H. Coats Building. Access to Statistics Canada's holdings of business microdata is available only at this facility. A prospective researcher must submit a project proposal to CDER following the process outlined in the CDER application process and guidelines. Only research-oriented projects can be undertaken at CDER. Alternative access to the data would be to request a custom tab from the subject matter divisions.
