October 27, 2016 - "To ensure that Canadians continue to benefit from high-quality statistics produced in accordance with internationally recognized methods and standards, the government will introduce legislative amendments to the Statistics Act to reinforce the independence of Statistics Canada. Specifically, the amendments will: • Give the Chief Statistician of Canada decision-making authority on the procedures, methods and professional standards regarding content, timing and methods of statistical releases and publications; • Appoint the Chief Statistician of Canada to a fixed five-year renewable term based on merit, only removable for cause and not at the pleasure of the government; • Increase transparency around decisions and directives made by the government as they relate to Statistics Canada; and • Replace the National Statistics Council with a newly created Canadian Statistics Advisory Council to reinforce independence, relevance and transparency in the national statistical system." - A Plan for Middle Class Progress : Fall Economic Statement - Government of Canada
