The 2021 Census of Population day was May 11 but the online portal is still open and they are 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. Please complete your questionnaire, if you haven’t already.
Census information is vital for planning programs and services at the national, provincial, territorial and local levels. We need this 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.
