Completing the census is mandatory

Answers to the census questions should reflect the household situation on May 10, 2016

CNW/ – Statistics Canada asks households that have not completed their census to submit their questionnaire as soon as possible. Answers to the census questions should reflect the household situation on May 10, 2016.

All residents of Canada are legally required to complete the census questionnaire, according to the Statistics Act.

Census staff will begin contacting households that have not completed their census questionnaire in person or by phone. All census staff carry an identification card with them at all times, or will clearly identify themselves on the telephone and explain the purpose of their call.

Census information is used in making decisions—for communities, provinces and territories, and the country as a whole.

 

More information on the 2016 Census can be found on the census website.
