Statistical Society of Canada

The Statistical Society of Canada (SSC) (French: Société statistique du Canada) is a professional organization whose mission it is to promote the use and development of statistics and probability.

Its objectives are

  • to make the general public aware of the value of statistical thought, the importance of this science and the contribution of statisticians to Canadian society;
  • to ensure that decisions that could have a major impact on Canadian society are based on relevant data, interpreted properly using statistics;
  • to promote the pursuit of excellence in training and statistical practice in Canada;
  • to encourage improvements in statistical methodology;
  • to maintain a sense of belonging within the profession, and to promote dialogue among theoreticians and practitioners of statistics.

Each year the SSC awards the CRM-SSC Prize, in collaboration with the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques, to an exceptional young Canadian statistician.

Famous quotes containing the words canada and/or society:

    I see Canada as a country torn between a very northern, rather extraordinary, mystical spirit which it fears and its desire to present itself to the world as a Scotch banker.
    Robertson Davies (b. 1913)

    To punish drug takers is like a drunk striking the bleary face it sees in the mirror. Drugs will not be brought under control until society itself changes, enabling men to use them as primitive man did: welcoming the visions they provided not as fantasies, but as intimations of a different, and important, level of reality.
    Brian Inglis (b. 1916)
