is migrating to new infrastructure. To complete the migration and to ensure we have the same content when we switch from the current to new infrastructure, we need to put the website in read-only mode. We will start with and on Friday, December 9 until we are ready to launch in the new infrastructure. During this time, there will be no harvests from data.json and other harvest sources.

Federal government users of will be able to generate a data.json file but will not be able to edit metadata.

On December 13, the main site,, and the Help Desk will also go to read-only.

The website will remain functional and public users should not be affected by the migration.

We anticipate completion of the migration process between December 22-27.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. The migration will enable to provide greater functionality to both government and public users.
