Extracting/downloading data using CHASS Canadian Census Analyser

The CHASS Canadian Census Analyser allows members of the University of Toronto research community to generate custom tables from the Census of Canada (1961-2016) and the National Household Survey (2011). The interface enables the selection of relevant variables and census geographies, providing access to data down to the dissemination area (DA) level. Census data can be incorporated into analytical and GIS software.
