The CCGSD has been working incredibly hard with Statistics Canada to create an inclusive and respectful Census in 2021.
In an effort to include as many voices as possible, Statistics Canada is conducting a public consultation on the 2021 Census of Population.
It should be noted that the primary goal of the online consultation questionnaire is designed to gather information about how and why Canadians use census data, the type of information they believe should be available from the census, and details of other data sources that could be used to supplement or replace current census content. The information gathered during consultation will help Statistics Canada assess the data needs of Canadians and evaluate whether emerging social and economic trends are reflected.
However, there is room for your feedback to help Statistics Canada determine the content of the 2021 Census of Population questionnaire.
Participation is secure
Statistics Canada is committed to respecting the privacy of consultation participants. All personal information collected by the agency is protected by the Privacy Act.
Comments collected during the consultation may be published anonymously in the 2021 Census of Population Content Consultation Report, which will be available on the Statistics Canada website in the fall of 2019.
