This seems rather incomplete at the moment, especially:
- no link to the source data
- no information on what data you actually intend to import
- no information on attribute and geometry processing
- no link to the processed data
If this represents the current state of preparation the planned two
weeks time until starting the import seems unrealistic. You need to
complete your plans and preparation to a point where they can be
properly assessed before you can ask for a review here and then you
need to allocate sufficient time afterwards for people to review and to
make adjustments based on the results.
And since the introductory paragraph on that page indicates there are
organizations involved in the planning of this (Stats Canada and City
of Ottawa) it would be important to know who of those involved in the
import is acting in a professional capacity for one of these
organizations and what their interest is in the matter.
