As the end of the field period for the Canadian Municipal Barometer’s 2020 survey approaches, we would like to remind readers about two background data sources that the CMB team released in the Fall. The first data source provides background data, including census data and original data on city council size and ward vs. at-large councils, for more than 400 of the largest municipalities across Canada.

Our second background data release provides a new look at women’s representation on Canadian municipal councils across Canada. Based on an original data collection effort by the CMB research team, the dataset provides information on women’s representation on Canadian municipal councils for more than 400 municipalities across Canada.
