The Community Information Database is a free Internet-based tool providing consistent and reliable social, economic and demographic data for all communities and regions across Canada.

The CID was developed by the Rural and Co-operatives Secretariat in collaboration with provincial, territorial and community partners. It is part of the Government of Canada's ongoing support to rural and remote communities.

We would welcome your comments on the CID. We would be particularly interested in hearing how the CID is useful to you. Please send an email to:
