Statistics Canada Data Liberation Initiative Licence Agreement

I understand that:

1.

Via the Data Liberation Initiative (DLI), Statistics Canada will offer my educational institution timely access, on a subscription basis, to standard Statistics Canada data products, such as public use microdata files (non-identifiable datasets containing characteristics pertaining to surveyed units). Statistics Canada will continue to offer support and training in relation to the Data Liberation Initiative (DLI) collection.

2.

My educational institution will be invoiced by Statistics Canada once a year, during the second quarter (April-June) for participation in the DLI program, and payment shall be remitted within thirty (30) days of receipt of invoice. As part of the DLI governance, subscription fees are reviewed at each DLI External Advisory Committee (EAC) meeting. The following methods of payment are accepted: Cheque/Money Order (non-federal clients); Credit Card (MasterCard), (Visa) or (American Express) (non-federal clients); Federal Government of Canada Interdepartmental Settlement (federal clients); Direct Deposit (non-federal clients).

3.

This agreement shall remain in effect until it is terminated by either party after giving one year's notice.

4.

Should my educational institution choose to withdraw from this agreement or not respect its financial commitment to DLI as per clause 2, this agreement will be terminated.

5.

Any repeated or unremedied violations of this Agreement may result in the termination of this Agreement by either party upon written notice to the other party.

6.

Authorized users shall be made aware, by my educational institution, of the conditions of use of the data by being provided with the appropriate licence as outlined in a, b, c and e below:

 

(a)

With a few exceptions, including the Postal CodeOM Conversion File and Postal CodeOM Federal Riding
File and Postal CodeOM Conversion File Plus (see: http://www.statcan.gc.ca/reference/exceptions-eng.html); the majority of our standard and custom products will be disseminated under the terms and conditions of the Statistics Canada Open Licence Agreement. (See http://www.statcan.gc.ca/reference/licence-eng.html).

 

(b)

Public Use Microdata Files will be disseminated under the Licence agreement for Public Use Microdata Files (refer to Appendix I).

The Postal Code Conversion File (PCCF) and Postal Code Federal Riding File (PCFRF) and Postal Code

The End-use License Agreement for Postal Code Conversion File, Postal Code Federal Riding File and Postal Code Conversion File Plus must be agreed to by each authorized user. Authorized users are strictly limited to: 1) current full or part time students of my educational institution; 2) current full or part time faculty members of my educational institution; and 3) administrators and/or faculty members of my educational institution for planning purposes. I understand and agree that my educational institution may not make any other use of the Postal Code Conversion File (PCCF) or Postal Code Federal Riding File (PCFRF) or Postal Code Conversion File Plus. If my educational institution is itself an authorized user of the Postal Code Conversion File (PCCF), Postal Code Federal Riding File (PCFRF) and Postal Code Conversion File Plus, it must also agree to the End-use License Agreement for Postal Code Conversion File, Postal Code Federal Riding File and Postal Code Conversion File Plus.
