The Canadian VirusSeq Data Portal (CVDP) is an open-access data portal funded by Genome Canada. It is intended to facilitate access to Canadian SARS-CoV-2 sequences and associated non-sensitive metadata adhering to the FAIR Data principles. Limited contextual metadata and viral genome sequences can be shared among Canadian public health labs, researchers and other groups interested in accessing the data for surveillance, research, and innovation purposes. The CVDP will harmonize, validate, and automate submission to international databases and enable the creation of real-time dashboards that summarize the Canadian data contributions while facilitating exploration and access. Sequences or metadata submitted to the CVDP may not include data that could reveal the personal identity of the source. Its is part of Canadian COVID Genomics Network (CanCOGeN).
