When Would You Use EAG Canada Allocate?

The software helps you find demographic and detailed expenditure statistics for populations across Canada, even at a Postal Code level. Take a look at some example statistical outputs to get a better idea of the possibilities.

The software is available on 3 laptops in the Library. Sign one out at the Library Information & Research Desk.

Once you have logged into the laptop using the credentials found on the login screen, look for the Allocate desktop icon to open the software.
