Following up on the previous census jobs post, here’s more info about the upcoming census in May. It looks like it will be mailed out in early May, and you can then fill it in on paper or do the census online.

Completion of Census forms ensures good data for many uses. For accuracy at neighbourhood levels it is extremely important as the smaller the area the greater need for all to participate. Census data can be shown at levels where the population is low only if the response rate is very high. Individual data is never available as confidentiality of individual or family data is protected by such means as rounding data, or suppressing in cases of very low numbers.

Further information re the Census can be obtained. It will take place in May . This material will allow you to encourage response. If you wish me to forward the census supporter toolkit toolkit I can do so.

Good afternoon, Amy.

I am contacting you today to inform you that the promotional products related specifically to promoting the completion of the Census questionnaire have been added to the Community Supporter Toolkit and are ready and available for use!

As part of the outreach strategy for the Census in 2016 we have developed this Community Supporter Toolkit (CST) in order to provide organizations, who wish to support the Census, with tools and materials necessary to do so. This tool kit contains a variety of electronic, social media and print media tools that you may use in order to help promote the benefits of completing the Census questionnaire within your community and networks. Your support and participation are both fundamental in helping to create awareness of the benefits of completing the questionnaire within your community.

At this point we are officially focusing our outreach efforts on Census questionnaire completion, with the questionnaire going out to households in May. However, you will not need to receive anything new, as the interactive PDF that you received previously has been updated to include new promotional materials. Please keep in mind that more materials will be added over the coming weeks, so be sure to check back periodically. Moreover, if you are having trouble finding your copy of the Community Supporter Toolkit, please let me know and I will send it to you again.

Notably, the Community Supporter Toolkit has been equipped with social media calendars. Essentially, these are calendars outlining the when and where for all our planned social media content for any given month. Currently, the calendar for April is available and the calendar for May will be added near the end of this month. I have attached the April calendar to this email. One of the simplest ways of helping to promote the Census within your community is through social media so feel free to follow, share, like and retweet content from Statistics Canada. Our accounts can be found at:

Twitter: @StatCan_eng and @StatCan_fra
Facebook: Statistics Canada and Statistique Canada
YouTube: Statistics Canada and Statistique Canada

If you encounter difficulty printing materials found within the CST, printed materials can be provided for you in some cases.

Once you have had time to look over the new products within the Community Supporter Toolkit, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, concerns or requests. I can be reached at 613-951-0567 or at

Thank you,
