The Geography Division of Statistics Canada and Intelec Geomatics were recently presented with ESRI Canada's Award of Excellence at the 8th Annual Regional ESRI User Conference.
Before every census, the Geography Division of Statistics Canada produces large quantities of maps in a range of scales and in formats of various sizes, including a series of maps delineating geographic territories for enumerators to use during collection of census data. In the past, cartographers produced these maps by hand. By the early 1990s, all maps for urban areas were being produced using Arc/Info.
A new approach was adopted for the 2006 census collection activity where the Geography Division of Statistics Canada re-engineered the application used in automated production of geographic maps to incorporate new technologies developed by ESRI (ArcGIS 9, the geodatabase, ArcSDE, ArcObjects, and the Maplex extension). A study was completed and Geography Division partnered with Intelec Geomatics, a Quebec-based Canadian firm specializing in systems development, telecommunications, and geomatics, to develop the Census Mapping System (CMS).
CMS has enabled the Geography Division to meet its map production goals. No production delays have been experienced, and in fact the production team was able to complete the first series of maps an entire month ahead of schedule.
This first series consisted of 41,505 unique maps of urban regions throughout Canada. The maps were produced, reviewed, packaged and delivered by a work team of less than 10 within a three-month period. Production of the second half of the required maps is currently underway. A key feature of CMS is that very few maps have required modifications after production, and users have expressed great satisfaction with the cartographic quality of the maps.

The Municipality of Montreal awarded Intelec corporate headquarters one of its Heritage Emeritus Awards for the 2004 Montreal Heritage Architectural Operation. The building is described as follows : « According to the inscription in its stone facade, this old country house was built in 1794. The religious community of "Les Pères de Saint-Croix" turned it into a school in 1847 and founded the Saint-Laurent College. With its remarkable size and the quality of its preservation, this splendid building is now used for office purposes. Notwithstanding important renovations in 1954 and 1972, the building kept its original character. Of particular interest are the field stone walls, the chimneys, the hung windows and wooden mouldings. ».
