Conducting educational research
Each regional centre for education (RCE) and the Conseil scolaire acadien provincial (CSAP) have their own processes for approving educational research requests. If you are looking to conduct research in schools, please contact the appropriate RCE or the CSAP.
Requests for Education-related Data
- If you are looking for provincial, regional, or school level data, please visit: Nova Scotia Government - Open Data Portal and Education Statistics - Statistical Summary | Statistical Summary (ednet.ns.ca).
- If you cannot find what you need, please contact ERP@novascotia.ca detailing your project and the type of data you are seeking. If appropriate, a copy of the research and information sharing guidelines and application form will be provided.
Please note: Timelines to evaluate and fulfil requests will depend on the type of data requested and any associated privacy implications, as well as the overall volume of requests being submitted to the Department. At a minimum, please expect this process to take several months.
