DataCritics is a Toronto company focusing on reviewing online resources for data analytics. We are on a mission to curate simplified content for users ranging from new to experienced professionals. We launched in January 2018 with six students from Ryerson University’s Data Analytics, Big Data, and Predictive Analytics Certificate Program who recognize the importance of bolstering a data analyst’s skill set through learning new skills from courses and bootcamps.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to offer an easy-to-navigate website with a steady flow of rich content from professionals in data analytics.

Our plan is to continue bringing up-and-coming data analysts onto our team to add their perspectives, and to work with Ryerson University in an effort to help our members learn the necessary skills to transition to the workplace.

Our promise is to be a friendy, interactive community whose members share local events and promote valuable resources to help the analytics industry.

Our hope is to grow a great network of learners who are looking towards the future trends in data analytics.
