The goal of this task is to find population data for the provinces of Canada and add it to the Data Hub. Data should be open source and not copyrighted, so that we can use it. Very likely census data for several years can be found.

Once you've located the data, please upload it to Vancouver, (one of our flagship cities).

Thanks for adding those George! :) If you could also add the links to the dataset(s) that you've added that would be great. It helps to keep track and makes it easier to find things easily. Might feel unnecessary because there is not a lot of data right now, but once there is more (fingers crossed ;) ) it will be very useful. Thanks :)

No problem, I added the links to the two datasets below.

Let me know if that's what you're looking for! Those are the website links I associated with the uploaded data.

Thanks George! What Carolin meant would be the links to the uploaded datasets (so the links within our own system). Do you have those at hand?

Yup! Sorry about that... the links to the uploaded datasets in the library are here:
