AbstractScientific numeric databases (SND), consisting of a machine-readable collection of critically evaluated scientific numeric data and computer programs allowing one to search, retrieve and manipulate those data, are impressive new research tools. To make these emerging tools available in Canada, CISTI has initiated a new program, entitled Scientific Numeric Databases, which is described in some detail. Special emphasis is given to the SNDs held by CISTI and the national CISTI-based network on which they are being implemented. Finally, an overview is given of the present situation in Canada with respect to the availability, generation and dissemination of this important information resource. Les bases de donn�es num�riques en sciences (BDNS), qui sont une collection de donn�es num�riques �valu�es dans les domains scientifiques et en logiciels permettant de chercher, rep�rer et manipuler ces donn�es, repr�sentent un nouvel outil de recherch� fort impressionnant. Afin de rendre disponible ce nouvel instrument de recherch� au Canada, l ICIST vient d �tablir un nouveau programme, intitul� Bases de donn�es num�riques, lequel est d�crit sommairement. Une attention particuli�re est donn�e aux BDM de l ICIST et au r�seau t�l�matique de l ICIST sur lequel ells sont implant�es. Pour terminer, l auteur donne une vue d ensemble sure la disponibilit�, la production et la diffusion de cet important reservoir d information au Canada
