A dataset of select StatsCan geographic boundaries and associated census profiles for access by authorized users in the BC Geographic Warehouse.
The geographic area boundaries, names, codes, and the relationships among the various geographic levels are found on Statistics Canada's Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI). These data for administrative areas are updated using information from provincial and territorial sources. These data for statistical areas are updated using the results of the previous census, as well as input from users.
