It is census time in Canada.
Statistics Canada collects data on Canada’s population. The information helps make decisions about programs like employment, education and health care. The census happens every five years.
Count every person.
You must complete a census form. It is the law.
The deadline to complete the online census form was May 11.
Did you miss the deadline?
You still have time.
Check your mail for a yellow envelope. Inside you will find a code to fill out the questionnaire online.
