How do we ensure quality data?

One way that we ensure quality — and that we are a trusted source of data — is through collaboration with our data suppliers. In addition, we produce annual data quality reports to assess the contribution of each province and territory to 11 of our databases. These reports are shared with the deputy ministers of health and key jurisdictional representatives from across the country. This reference guide describes the indicators and methodology used in these reports.
