Alumni access to DLI WDS and Nesstar


Can alumni request IP access to DLI WDS and Nesstar restricted platforms?


Unfortunately, the DLI License agreement for Public Use Microdata Files (PUMFs) currently stipulates that access to DLI data can be granted only to those individuals having a current standing (students, faculty, researchers, administrators) at participating institutions. Therefore in this and similar cases we are not extending access to alumni of DLI institutions and would recommend that the individual access our free public resources available on the Statistics Canada website. This is also noted in the FAQ on Licensing Questions and Decisions available at :
