Centre for Quantitative Analysis & Decision Support

About Us


CQADS can help you formulate and answer the questions that shape your research, planning, and business activities.

The Centre for Quantitative Analysis and Decision Support (CQADS) opened its doors in 2013. A joint initiative of the Faculty of Science and of the School of Mathematics and Statistics at Carleton University, CQADS offers a variety of analytical services to its clients on a cost-recovery basis.

Starting in January 2019, the CQADS main focus will shift to Consultant Training. At a discounted rate, CQADS consultants will assist you in the collection, processing, visualization, or analysis of your organization's data, in order to extract actionable insights. Contact cqads [at] carleton.ca (subject: Consulting%20Project) for details.
