Participate Now in the 2021 Census!
On behalf of Statistics Canada, we are pleased to inform you that the 2021 Census of Population is underway. For collective dwellings such as a hotel, motel campground, YMCA/YWCA, Ronald McDonald House, hostel or school residence, the census has been in progress since April 26th and need remaining questionnaires to be completed immediately.
Information collected through the census will provide decision-makers with data needed to forecast funding requirements and plan for services such as schools, public transportation, hospitals, and residences for temporary accommodation.
Participating is easy and secure.
Starting April 26th 2021, administrators of collective dwellings like yours across Canada will receive an invitation letter or email from Statistics Canada asking them to complete their online questionnaire. The letter contains instructions about how to complete the online questionnaire for your facility and the secure access code required to complete it. It is important that you keep this document.
Each administrator will be required to complete a short series of questions about their establishment. The census questionnaire will need to be completed via an online portal as soon as possible. The portal is easy to use and secure. If you are not the administrator but you receive the letter or email at the end of April, please ensure that you pass it on to the person responsible for administration at your establishment.
If you have any questions, please contact Statistics Canada by phone at 1-877-949-9492 (TTY: 1-800-363-7629*), by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or consult the collectives webpage.
