All residents are encouraged to complete the 2021 federal census online, available now at www.census.gc.ca. Census invitation letters from Statistics Canada, containing the survey link and access code, are arriving this week.
Census information is important for our community and is vital for planning schools, daycare, family services, housing, emergency services, roads, public transportation and skills training for employment.
If you are unable to take the census online, you can return the completed paper questionnaire by mail. If any in-person follow-up is required, Statistics Canada enumerators will follow all COVID-19 protocols including no indoor interviews, wearing masks and maintaining proper physical distancing.
Every five years, Canadians are invited to participate in the census to help paint a portrait of Canada's diverse population and the places where we live.
The census provides high-quality information on key socioeconomic trends and analysis that helps Canadians make important decisions that affect our families, our neighbourhoods and our businesses.
