About Research Data Canada
Research Data Canada is a collaborative effort to address the challenges and issues surrounding the access and preservation of data arising from Canadian research. This multi-disciplinary group of universities, institutes, libraries, granting agencies, and individual researchers has a shared recognition of the pressing need to deal with Canadian data management issues from a national perspective.
Research Data Canada & RDA
Research Data Canada has joined RDA because we believe that our work in Canada must both be informed by international efforts in research data interoperability and must contribute to those efforts. RDA is the obvious choice to meet both imperatives.
