Stage 7: Project closure


Data Access Unit staff at Population Data BC (PopData) must be informed when a research project is complete, and access to the data is no longer required.

Data Access Unit staff will then provide the Researcher with project closure documentation which details the steps necessary to destroy and/or return all data to PopData at the conclusion of the research project, as stipulated under the Research Agreement.

Project closure forms and documentation may be found in Document Central.
