Description:

Canada’s rapidly changing demographic profile, along with its accompanying social and economic issues, has led to much discussion concerning the relationship between work, lifestyle and well-being. Gauging the quality of life at work can help diagnose issues relating to productivity, morale, efficiency and equity. Charting patterns of home and leisure activities can take the temperature of Canadian culture. Bringing these two together will provide insight on the health and well-being of Canadians as they meet the challenges of the future.

The General Social Survey Program’s new cycle,Canadians at Work and Home, takes a comprehensive look at the way Canadians live by incorporating the realms of work, home, leisure, and overall well-being into a single unit. Data users have expressed a strong interest in knowing more about the lifestyle behaviour of Canadians that impact their health and well-being both in the workplace and at home. The strength of this survey is its ability to take diverse information Canadians provide on various facets of life and combine them in ways not previously possible with surveys that covered one main topic only.

The survey includes a multitude of themes. In the work sphere, it explores important topics such as work ethic, work intensity and distribution, compensation and employment benefits, work satisfaction and meaning, intercultural workplace relations, and bullying and harassment. On the home front, questions include family activity time, the division of labour and work-life balance. The survey also covers eating habits and nutritional awareness, the use of technology, sports and outdoor activities, and involvement in cultural activities. New-to-GSS questions on purpose in life, opportunities, life aspirations, outlook and resilience complement previously asked ones on subjective well-being, stress management and other socioeconomic variables.

Within Canada, all levels of government, academics and not-for-profit organizations have expressed interest in the results. Data from this survey will assist with program and policy decisions and research of all kinds interested in exploring the workplace, home life and leisure activities of Canadians from all areas of life. In addition, some of the data from this survey will be comparable internationally.

Description:

LFS data are used to produce the well-known unemployment rate as well as other standard labour market indicators such as the employment rate and the participation rate. The LFS also provides employment estimates by industry, occupation, public and private sector, hours worked and much more, all cross-classifiable by a variety of demographic characteristics. Estimates are produced for Canada, the provinces, the territories and a large number of sub-provincial regions. For employees, data on wage rates, union status, job permanency and establishment size are also produced.

These data are used by different levels of government for evaluation and planning of employment programs in Canada. Regional unemployment rates are used by Employment and Social Development Canada to determine eligibility, level and duration of insurance benefits for persons living within a particular employment insurance region. The data are also used by labour market analysts, economists, consultants, planners, forecasters and academics in both the private and public sector.

Description:

ICIS Cadastre The ICIS Cadastre is ICIS’ answer to the challenge of providing a single source parcel layer for its members. The data in this layer includes the best available parcel data from both Provincial and Local Government sources with standardized and uniform attribution. In areas where both Local Government and GeoBC contribute data, the Local Government data prevails. All ICIS Cadastre data is delivered via GeoShare, ICIS’s automated delivery mechanism, and is refreshed on a weekly basis. The data for each jurisdiction comes from either the local government or GeoBC, and is joined to standardized attribution established by GeoBC to create a uniform cadastre across boundaries and to verify that all registered parcels are included in the fabric.

ICF The Integrated Cadastral Fabric is produced by GeoBC’s Parcel Fabric Section on behalf of ICIS. The ICF layer includes many jurisdictions that are maintained on a bi-weekly basis by GeoBC to published attribute and currency standards. In other jurisdictions where the data is not actively maintained by GeoBC, the ICF includes local government parcel shapes with standardized Provincial attribution. An attribute on the fabric distinguishes between parcels that have been maintained by GeoBC and parcels that have been integrated from other ICIS members. More information about the ICF compilation program can be found at http://apps.gov.bc.ca/pip. GeoBC’s ICF Status Map provides a visual index to the current state of completion and maintenance of the ICF.

Local Government Cadastre. The Local Government Cadastre (As-Is-Cadastre) is a parcel fabric assembled entirely from local government data. Submissions are provided manually on an ad hoc basis and are not included in the ICIS Cadastre. Whatever datasets have been received within the last 30 days are manually loaded into the Local Government Cadastre once a month. This layer does not contain standardized attribution, although we attempt to reconcile fields with similar content as best as we can. The positional accuracy and attribution varies from local government to local government.

BC Assessment. The BC Assessment Fabric is a geospatial representation of the assessment roll. It contains a record for almost every assessed property in British Columbia. Unlike a legal cadastre fabric, it is an ownership fabric. This means there may be many legal lots represented by one assessed property or folio. Properties that do not have a spatial representation defined by its corresponding local government are occasionally represented using a diamond shape as a placeholder. This is done to assist finding a property’s location, and is usually a precursor to having a property boundary defined. The BC Assessment Fabric represents 99.14% of the assessment roll as of January 2015

Address BC. AddressBC is a centralized, geospatial, civic address repository, populated with address data from ICIS Local Government members and standardized to the AddressBC data model as a point feature class.

Other data: Agricultural Land Reserve Parcels, BC Centre for Disease Control Growing Days, Canadian Wildlife Service Boundaries, Conservation Parcels, Health Care Facilities, Police Jurisidiction Boundaries.

Description:

The input-output multipliers are derived from the supply and use tables. They are used to assess the effects on the economy of an exogenous change in final demand for the output of a given industry. They provide a measure of the interdependence between an industry and the rest of the economy.

The national and provincial multipliers show the direct, indirect, and induced effects on gross output, the detailed components of GDP, jobs, and imports. Like the supply and use tables, the multipliers are presented at four levels of aggregation: Detail level (236 industries), Link-1997 level (187 industries), Link-1961 level (111 industries) and Summary level (35 industries).

Description:

The Skeletal Road Network Files (SRNFs) are disseminated to provide geographic reference information for the 2001 Census data. They can be used to reference the boundaries of the geographic areas by which Census data are tabulated.

The Skeletal Road Network File contains selected roads (with road names, but no addresses) that are derived from the Road Network Files (Catalogue No. 92F0157XCE). The selected roads are ranked according to four levels of detail. The different levels of detail are suitable for mapping at small to medium scales. The Skeletal Road Network Files can be used to provide some roads for cartographic reference when producing thematic maps with the Cartographic Boundary Files. The positional accuracy of the Skeletal Road Network File does not support cadastral, surveying or engineering applications.

Skeletal Road Network Files provide full digital coverage for Canada. There are 59 standard Skeletal Road Network Files:

  • Canada
  • 10 Provinces and 2 territories
  • 27 census metropolitan areas
  • 19 census agglomerations with census tracts
To order these files, please consult the Census Geography Filename page (below) and contact Data Services. Important note for Arcinfo users When converting the .e00 files to Arcinfo shape coverages, please remove the underscores in the .e00 files (ie, rename them), as the conversion program will not work with underscores. For more information on converting .e00 interchange format files to Arcinfo format, see the ESRI knowledge base.

Description:

The Road Network Files (RNFs) are disseminated to provide geographic reference information for the 2001 Census data. They can be used to reference the boundaries of the geographic areas by which Census data are tabulated or to request retrievals of census data by user defined geographic areas.

Road Network Files contain a road layer for the entire country and a province/territory boundary layer. The road layer includes roads, with road names and address ranges (arc attributes), and geographic codes to identify blocks, census subdivisions, census metropolitan areas/census agglomerations, and provinces/territories (polygon attributes). Address ranges are mainly available in the large urban centres of Canada. The province/territory boundary layer incorporates hydrography (the shoreline around Canada and the inland lakes and waterways) with the boundaries and the geographic codes.

Roads in the Road Network Files are ranked at five levels of detail. This allows the users to select different subsets of roads for mapping purposes. Road Network Files provide full digital coverage for Canada. There are 60 standard Road Network Files:

  • Canada
  • 10 Provinces and 3 territories
  • 27 census metropolitan areas
  • 19 census agglomerations with census tracts

Description:

The 2001 Census Forward Sortation Area (FSA) Boundary File contains the boundaries of 1,577 forward sortation areas (the first three characters of a postal code) derived from postal codes captured from the 2001 Census of Population questionnaires. Through analysis of the postal codes reported by Census households, a single Forward Sortation Area was assigned to each reported block based on the most frequently reported Forward Sortation Area for the block. Unreported blocks were assigned a Forward Sortation Area based on proximity to reported blocks in the same province or territory.

The product consists of two separate layers:

  • a boundary file whose extents are those of the National Geographic Base, and
  • a cartographic boundary file which incorporates hydrography (the shoreline around Canada) with the Forward Sortation Area boundaries.

The co-ordinates are in latitude/longitude and are based on the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83).

Description:

This product contains three layers of information: the ecumene boundary layer, the census division boundary layer and the province/territory boundary layer.

The ecumene boundary layer consists of a polygon layer. Polygons in the layer are classified as being part of the landmass or as water. Land polygons contain attributes classifying them as part of the ecumene or as part of the sparsely populated areas not assigned to the ecumene. Every census division contains at least one ecumene polygon. Each polygon has the census division unique identifier code (CDuid), as an attribute along with data such as the 2001 Census population, population density per square kilometre and the percentage change in population between the 1996 and 2001 Censuses.
