PEDAL lab is a medium security facility that specializes in transforming and analyzing administrative data collected for purposes other than research.

We have established working partnerships with multiple data providers at various government levels.

Research Projects

Current projects concern education policy issues at the elementary, secondary, and post-secondary levels; issues concerning donor and government behaviour with respect to the charitable sector


The idea of creating a lab solely for public economic research started in 2002. Funded by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, Ontario Innovation Trust, and McMaster University, we have created a laboratory that has physical, educational and data resources to conduct research related to public economic policy.
