This diagram is presented in the form of a pyramid without its top point. It is divided into five horizontal bands. The top band is labelled "Outcome: Canadians have access to timely, relevant and quality statistical information on Canada's changing economy and society." The four following bands each represent one aspect of this outcome.
The first of these other bands is called "Relevance," representing the need to produce data that are pertinent.
The next band is divided into two horizontal sub-bands. The top part is called "Trust." The lower part comprises the components of trust: "Quality" (on the left), "Objectivity" (in the centre) and "Confidentiality" (on the right). These three aspects must be present in statistics for users to be able trust them.
Next is a band called "Access," representing the need for people to obtain statistical information.
The final band is called "Stewardship." It refers to Statistics Canada's use of strategic leadership and proactive management of resources and assets in obtaining this outcome.
Three borders on the diagram represent the enablers that allow Statistics Canada to achieve this outcome. On the left side is "Human resources," on the right side is "Governance," and across the base is "Risk management."
