Stats Canada electronic docs at no charge!

From The Daily:

Effective April 24, all electronic publications on Statistics Canada's Web site will be available free of charge.

The Agency has been steadily increasing the volume of free content on its Web site to respond to the information needs of Canadians. This latest move makes available at no charge more than 150 electronic publications for which fees were previously charged.

Statistics Canada will continue to charge for print versions of publications and for other electronic products and services, such as CD-ROMs, specialized data tables and customized retrievals from CANSIM and the Canadian International Merchandise Trade database.

For more information, contact François Bordé (613-951-2808), Communications and Library Services Division.
