2016 census and the return of the long-form

by Faculty Association | Filed under May 2016.

Canada’s census is being conducted in May 2016. This year also sees the return of the long-form census which was announced in fall 2015. Restoring the long-form census was advocated by academics and the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT), among others.

In May, census packages are delivered to households across Canada, providing residents with the information they need to complete their questionnaire online or on paper.

Completed questionnaires will provide valuable information that will be used by all levels of government to make decisions about your neighbourhood and community. Information obtained through the census is needed to plan services such as child care, schooling, family services, housing, public transportation and skills training for employment.

Every person, young and old, must be included in the 2016 Census.
