Accessing ICES Data
If you are a publicly-funded, not-for-profit researcher, student, policy maker or knowledge user who wants to obtain and analyze ICES data to answer a research question, you may submit a request to the DAS staff for access to data. DAS staff will contact you to determine the feasibility, timelines and cost of the requested data.

Analytic Services and Reports
DAS can also provide analytic services and/or reports based on analysis of ICES data (i.e., in cases where the requestor is not seeking data). For example, as part of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Applied Health Research Question (AHRQ) process, knowledge users from across the Ontario health system can propose questions for ICES consideration and possible response.
If you are unsure whether you are seeking data, analytic services or other forms of AHRQ response, please Email or contact ICES DAS staff at 416-480-4092, toll-free: 1-844-848-9855.
