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.
