Data Location


2013- 2014 - Elections Canada is the elections authority at a national level. Its terms and conditions prohibit commercial reproduction of materials on its website ( However, publishes many of the same materials under an open license. Elections are also held in the provinces and territories as well as municipalities. Each jurisdiction would need to be contacted to assess the degree of openess. Regarding the conflicting licences we have sent a question to the respective authorities but we have assessed that data is available under an open licence.

Canada does count and report results in poll station level, but it publish and display the results in an aggregated district level. Therefore, the data exists and is digital, it just not publicly available.

Reviewer comments

Data is not in poll station level. Change it to exist but not publish.
