Quebec Interuniversity Centre for Social Statistics (QICSS)
Created in 2001, the Quebec Interuniversity Centre for Social Statistics (QICSS) serves the whole research community in Quebec. In addition to Statistics Canada's, the QICSS provides access to the Institut de la statistique du Québec surveys (through the CADRISQ). The main infrastructure is located on the campus of the University of Montreal but researchers can also access data through four affiliated branches on the campus of UQÀM, Sherbrooke, McGill, and Laval universities.
The QICSS is very active in knowledge transfer and regularly sponsors or organizes research seminars and scientific conferences. It also proposes training activities as well as grants and scholarships for students.
