The North-South Institute (NSI) and partner research institutions from the global South have launched the Post-2015 Data Test, a multi-country research initiative that examines how the universal post-2015 development agenda can be applied and measured across a variety of country contexts.

To kick off the Canada case study, NSI organized a one-day workshop on Thursday, April 24, 2014.

The key objectives of the workshop were to:

1) introduce stakeholders to the post-2015 development agenda and what it means for Canada;
2) solicit feedback regarding Canadian priorities for each potential goal area under the initiative;
3) conduct an initial scoping of the key issues related to data availability and accessibility at country
level for measuring progress on post-2015; and
4) identify key stakeholders with whom to further engage throughout the research process.

Workshop participants included members of government, civil society, academia, media, the private sector, and users and producers of data.
