The 2021 Census enumerates the entire Canadian population and more than 15 million households are expected to complete the census this year. Census information is vital for planning programs and services at the national, provincial, territorial and local levels. Governments use census data to make informed decisions about things like roads, public transportation, schools, daycare centres, retirement residences and health services. The benefits to the community increase with every completed questionnaire.

You can complete the census online here.
(You would have received your secure access code in the mail which you can enter to begin census.)
