Tips

Author

Most Statistics Canada documents will have the author as Statistics Canada. This is considered a group or corporate author.

Publisher

Because the author and publisher are both Statistics Canada, the word Author is used where you'd normally put the Publisher's name.

Formatting

Note: All citations should be double spaced and have a hanging indent in a Reference List.

A "hanging indent" means that each subsequent line after the first line of your citation should be indented by 0.5 inches.
