How do I complete the 2021 Census questionnaire?

(Text on screen says, "How do I complete the 2021 Census questionnaire?")

In May, your household will receive a letter to complete the 2021 Census questionnaire. On your letter, you will find a secure access code that allows you to complete the questionnaire online.

(A female postal worker is placing an envelope into a mailbox. The screen zooms into the mailbox to reveal the secure access code. A red circle is placed around the secure access code.)

Once online, you can complete the questionnaire in three easy steps. Simply log on using your secure access code, complete the questionnaire and select "Submit."

(Three circles appear on screen with the numbers 1, 2, and 3 in them. The screen transitions to the access code being entered into a rectangular bar and the text above it says, "www.census.gc.ca." Then, a male character is completing the census questionnaire on his laptop and clicks submit. Text on the laptop says, "complete.")

If you need help or require a paper version, please call the Census Help Line.

(The male character picks up his cell phone and makes a call.)

For more information or to complete the 2021 Census questionnaire, visit census.gc.ca. It's safe, quick and easy.
