A Quick Guide to Canadian Census Geographies

I’ve been working with some new teams on research projects over the past months. These projects involve using Canadian census data, and lots of it. Quite a few of the new people are new to using census data and the typical jargon that goes along with census geographies. I could not find a reasonable explainer on the different geographies, data naming conventions, etc in the census and short of having people click through 8000 different pages on Stats Can, I figured why not put together a little guide. I thought I may also be useful for others. Visit my website to download.
