A new satellite location of the New Brunswick Institute for Research, Data and Training (NB-IRDT) has been launched on the UNB Saint John campus in what will soon be a shared facility with Statistics Canada Research Data Centre (RDC), expected to open next spring.

This is one of two similar locations, the other is located at Universite de Moncton, to become the first data facilities of their kind in Canada to house both federal and provincial administrative data securely. UNB Fredericton hosts the main sites of these data centres in the province.

Serving as a research data centre for the province, NB-IRDT provides researchers with secure access to provincial administrative data allowing researchers to examine questions that will empower government to implement evidence-based policy, stretch public dollars, anticipate the needs of a changing population, and encourage growth.
