Reminder: Complete the 2021 Census
The 2021 Census of Population day was Tuesday, May 11 however the online portal is still open and Statistics Canada is still accepting questionnaires online and on paper. The census enumerates the entire Canadian population and over 15 million households are expected to complete the census this year. If you haven’t completed your questionnaire yet, please do so as soon as possible.
Census information is vital for planning programs and services at the national, provincial, territorial and local levels. Governments use census data to make informed decisions about things like roads, public transportation, schools, daycare centres, retirement residences and health services. The benefits to our community increase with every completed questionnaire.
