GC Data Community

Data has the power to inform better policies, programs and operations, but it takes people with the right skills to realize its full potential. The GC Data Community was created to connect, engage and support the growing community of data practitioners across the federal government. It operates based on support from over a dozen departments and agencies.

About us

The GC Data Community provides support in five main areas:

  • convening and connecting data practitioners from all levels across departments and agencies
  • enabling learning and professional development opportunities related to data
  • supporting innovation and connections between data communities of practice
  • promoting uptake of ethical norms, data standards and governance practices
  • co-hosting the annual Government of Canada Data Conference

Join us
