The CCRI represents an infrastructure that facilitates research on the transformation of Canadian society in the twentieth century. The CCRI's mandate is to provide researchers with a body of data and information that can be used to acquire a better understanding of how modern-day Canada has developed. The CCRI is composed of microdata, namely, data created from Canadian census enumerations between 1911 to 1951, a geographical framework constructed to enable the location, selection, aggregation, and analysis of census data, and contextual data, namely the textual data used to situate the census in time and to enhance appropriate analysis of the data.

In September 2013, the City adopted the Canadian Open Government Licence (OGL). It gives users consistent terms for accessing and using government data, making it easier to combine, integrate, and share data from multiple providers across Canada. This is a major step towards encouraging wider use of open data and delivering more value to the public. Vancouver joins the Government of Canada, Provinces of BC, Alberta, and Ontario, and the cities of Nanaimo, Edmonton, and Toronto in adopting the OGL.
