Community and Neighbourhood Data

The Statistics Canada tool GeoSearch lets you use a map interface to zoom in on an area of interest. When you reach a high enough level of zooming streets and street names will become visible to allow you to pinpoint the exact location. You need to pick a level of geography such as census dissemination areas or census tracts; they will become available to select after you zoom in far enough. The "additional data" tab lets you download detailed census data for the selected area. You can only download one area at a time; if you need to merge multiple areas into a larger neighbourhood, proceed with caution.
