Statistics Canada (StatCan) conducts a national Census every five years. The next Census will be in May 2021 and all Canadians will take part.
In light of COVID-19 restrictions, StatCan will deliver a "contactless census" in 2021. This innovation increases the need for local employees within each province and territory.

Learn about the Census
The Census provides a statistical portrait of Canada’s population and communities. It is the basis for population estimates for provinces, territories and municipal areas.
Census data help governments, non-profits and businesses make informed decisions. This is especially important for communities with small populations or small geographic areas.
Census estimates also allow the Government of Canada to:
- set electoral boundaries with fair representation;
- estimate demand for services; and
- calculate federal funding for provinces and territories.
You can learn more about the Census on the StatCan website.
