The Statistical Society of Canada (SSC) (French: Société statistique du Canada) is a professional organization whose mission it is to promote the use and development of statistics and probability.

Its objectives are

  • to make the general public aware of the value of statistical thought, the importance of this science and the contribution of statisticians to Canadian society;
  • to ensure that decisions that could have a major impact on Canadian society are based on relevant data, interpreted properly using statistics;
  • to promote the pursuit of excellence in training and statistical practice in Canada;
  • to encourage improvements in statistical methodology;
  • to maintain a sense of belonging within the profession, and to promote dialogue among theoreticians and practitioners of statistics.

Each year the SSC awards the CRM-SSC Prize,[1] in collaboration with the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques, to an exceptional young Canadian statistician.
