Resources for educators

Canada's next census will be conducted in May 2021. Educators will play an important role in its success by ensuring that their students understand what a census is and what they and their families need to do to complete the census questionnaire.

By doing so, you will have a direct impact on gathering the data needed to plan, develop and evaluate important programs and services such as schools, daycare, housing, hospitals, emergency services, roads, public transportation and employment skills training.

Are you ready to make a lasting contribution to Canada, its communities and its people?
