Message from the Chief Statistician of Canada

The census paints a portrait of Canada's population and the places where we live. It provides high-quality information for communities across the country and is used to plan services that support employment, education and health care.

Preparations for the next census have begun, and Statistics Canada is seeking your participation in this important test.

By law, your household must complete a 2019 Census Test questionnaire. Your answers are collected under the authority of the Statistics Act and will be kept strictly confidential.

If you are a farm operator, it is equally important that you complete your 2019 Census Test questionnaire to ensure the information collected is as accurate and complete as possible.

Statistics Canada employs a number of mechanisms to manage the response burden on Canadians by using existing administrative data sources such as immigration records and personal income tax and benefit data.

The information that you provide will be used by Statistics Canada for statistical purposes.

Be part of this new portrait of Canada and complete your census questionnaire today.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Anil Arora
Chief Statistician of Canada
