By law, every household must complete a 2021 Census of Population questionnaire.
Why should you participate in the Census?
The information you provide is converted into statistics used by communities, businesses and governments to plan services and make informed decisions about employment, education, health care, market development and more.
Is my information safe?
Your answers are collected under the authority of the Statistics Act and kept strictly confidential. Farm operators must also complete a Census of Agriculture questionnaire.
How is my information used?
Statistics Canada makes use of existing sources of information such as immigration, income tax and benefits data to ensure the least amount of burden is placed on households. The information that you provide may be used by Statistics Canada for other statistical and research purposes or may be combined with other survey or administrative data sources.
