The establishment and update of the Canadian Human Mortality Database receive financial support from the SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada). Initial deaths data were obtained thanks to Statistics Canada’s cooperation.

This project would not have been possible without the collaboration of the research teams at the Department of Demography, University of California at Berkeley (UCB) and the Laboratory of Demographic Data at the Max Plank Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR). These organizations are responsible for the development of the Human Mortality Database (HMD). John Wilmoth (UCB) leads the team of researchers at Berkeley and is Director of the HMD. Vladimir Shkolnikov (MPIDR) heads the team at Max Planck and is Co-Director of the HMD. Kirill Andreev is a Demographer at the United Nations Population Division and has been working with the MPIDR team since the establishment of the HMD. Notably, he takes part in writing the core computer programs with Dmitri Jdanov and Carl Boe. Magali Barbieri (UCB) is the HMD Project Coordinator.
