Community Data Program

The Flagship Initiative of the Canadian Council on Social Development

Enabling communities to measure and track local well-being

The Community Data Program is a membership-based community development initiative open to any Canadian public, non-profit or community sector organization with a local service delivery or public policy mandate.

Created by CCSD, the CDP facilitates access to and use of the evidence needed to tell our stories and inform effective and responsive policy and program design and implementation. Through the CDP, the CCSD seeks to enable social development that tackles the pressing challenges of our time in communities across the country. 

The CDP makes data accessible and useful for all members with training and capacity building resources. Through its vibrant network, the CDP facilitates and supports dialogue and the sharing of best practices in the use of community data. The CDP has emerged as a unique Canada-wide platform for generating information, convening and collaborating.
