Fact Sheets

Vanier Institute fact sheets offer readers statistics and data on various family-related subjects in a single-page format. Each fact sheet is a straightforward and convenient resource for learning about families in Canada, providing statistics in a clear manner with hyperlinks to all cited sources. Fact sheets are updated periodically when new data is available (prior versions of updated fact sheets are archived, but are available upon request).
