  • De-Identification of data meaning it cannot be traced back to an individual.
  • Aggregation of data into large data pools ensuring privacy is fully protected at all times.
  • Data extrapolation to be representative of the total Canadian Population.
  • By de-identifying and aggregating the data, it is possible to preform geographic and movement analysis, while respecting privacy.
