Monitoring Canada's Progress to Achieve the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals

OTTAWA - The Government of Canada is committed to helping make the world a better place, now and in the future. The government is launching a new statistics hub, hosted by Statistics Canada, to support its commitment to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a United Nations initiative that brings countries together to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.

The new Sustainable Development Goals Data Hub—SDG Data Hub—is a one-stop online resource with valuable statistics and metrics to track Canada's progress in achieving the 17 goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. The SDG Data Hub will be an evergreen resource updated as new data and statistics become available, and will evolve as global indicators are further developed.

The SDG Data Hub is the result of a collaborative effort among several federal government departments to provide accurate and reliable statistics from many sources, including federal departments and agencies, international organizations and non-governmental organizations.

Data on a wide range of topics will be accessible through the hub, including statistics on the economy and gender equality, official development assistance, income, health, agriculture, and education. Canada's statistics for the global indicators related to the life on land, water and air will also be available.
