For policy to work it has to be relevant, and to be relevant it has to be credible. Whether  it's fiscal and monetary policy, foreign and defence policy, or social policy, the numbers need to make sense, and you need to be able make sense of them.

There are few research firms better than Government Analytics that can sift through mountains of data linked, for example, to government supply, and turn it into actionable insight.

Each jurisdiction in Canada has its own supply process - where supplementary estimates offer departments the opportunity to update their initial requests tabled in the Main Estimates every Spring.

Be it from the floor, at committee, or in tailored speech as part of a PowerPoint presentation to colleagues, or as the subject matter expert, Government Analytics  provides more targeted results, faster, with less work.

By choosing Government Analytics services, you are not just accessing data; you are unlocking a suite of tailored, insightful, and useful solutions that can significantly enhance discourse and engagement.

And we do it by staying on top of the complex appropriation cycle that drives government decision-making and never stops churning, with a critical eye on what's new, what's different and what matters.


Government Analytics ability to produce understandable analytics means it can dig deep on policy issues, providing insights grounded in evidence, and packaged to be easily understood and curated as part of compelling narratives

Canada’s Fiscal Policy

This includes generating charts from our proprietary source documents that contain detailed spending data for the federal departments and agencies, based on their plans and priorities, estimates, and departmental results reports

Canada’s Monetary Policy

It also includes weekly updates on the Bank of Canada balance sheet, its quarterly Monetary Policy Report and the active monitoring of other reports, statements and public commentary

The federal response to the 2020-21 pandemic witnessed an unprecedented amount of spending by the federal government, and debt purchasing (quantitative easing) by the Bank of Canada, amounting to $1.088 Trillion

Public Policy Makers

The power of Government Analytics is its capacity to triangulate its analytics to generate better outcomes. We work closely with clients to ensure data sources are not only relevant and credible, but are tightly linked to the metrics designed to generate the performance and desired outcome.

So it's not just data crunching, it's about fostering a strategic approach to the data, an integrated transformation between subject matter experts, key stakeholders and those working in the field.

Amalgamating disparate world views is not easy. Making sense of them is even more difficult. Government Analytics has the experience and expertise to identify and validate the obstacles preventing certain metrics from being achieved when producing data analytics Bottom-up Implementation

The Government Analytics  approach to data transformation stems from the groundbreaking work of Miko Yuk – with BI Brainz in Atlanta, Georgia – where private sector clients improve their strategic choices by gaining deeper insight from their data.

The first step in the process is to identify a goal or policy direction among a team representative of the larger organization.  Commit to quickly working through all the known challenges to settle on a direction or goal - where generating actionable insights is the shared objective

This visualization on the right outlines the process: The team establishes a shared goal, identifies metrics, and prior to transitioning to action, engages in analytics, including data modeling and, predictive analysis.  This process generates essential evidence to inform and guide subsequent actions

Settlement and Nova Scotia

Government Analytics completed an immigration and migration analysis for the Province of Nova Scotia at the end of 2021, that took 8 weeks to complete. It included a quantitative analysis based on analytics drawn from over 15 data sets.

Deep in the Government Analytics data bank is a list of every federal government funding program, grant and contribution.  We can also access program criteria and, in many cases, the actual project authority.  And given many federal funding programs require partnerships, Government Analytics also has the capacity to integrate these federal initiatives with publicly available funding on the websites of private sector and not-for-profit organizations across Canada, and funding programs publicly accessible on the websites of each of the provincial territorial governments.
