  • University of Brandon Research at BU: Researchers are encouraged to visit the individual faculty and school websites or to contact the Research Office when looking for a specific researcher or research area.
  • Canadian Clinical Trials Asset Map: A searchable, web-based database of Canadian clinical research assets (i.e., hospitals, institutes, investigators). Researchers are encouraged to register and complete a profile and description of their research.

12.4 Looking for Research Data Sources

  • Manitoba Population Health Research Data Repository: The data repository housed at the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (MCHP) contains administrative data on health, education and justice and survey and census data primarily relating to residents of Manitoba. Line-level data can be linked to different data sets via a unique scrambled personal health information number.
  • Manitoba Research Data Centre: The Centre is located on the grounds of the Bannatyne Campus of the University of Manitoba. The Centre is a secure Statistics Canada office that provides researchers with approved projects access to micro data from Statistics Canada's longitudinal surveys and other household surveys.
  • the Department of Epidemiology and Cancer Registry, which maintains the Manitoba Cancer Registry and other cancer-related databases.
