Federal Government

Open Data Portal The Government of Canada produces and acquires data in areas such as health, environment, agriculture, and natural resources. This website provides a "single-window" to data already published by individual departments and agencies on their public Websites.  The pilot project is intended to improve the ability of the public to find, download and use Government of Canada data. You are invited to search the catalogue, download datasets. For more data holdings available to Carleton users see the Find Data guide.
