Keynote Speaker

Darren Lezubski

Darren is a Consulting Analyst at Statistics Canada who is doing a talk on geography tools and resources at Stats Can.

Accurate and reliable data, presented in a manner that brings information to life, has never been more crucial. Doing so requires not only the necessary skills, but the ability to identify and utilize available tools and resources. From understanding geographic codes to embracing interactive applications and data visualizations, the presentation seeks to foster awareness of geographical resources available from Statistics Canada.
