Starting on May 2, 2016, Statistics Canada began sending census packages to all Canadian households. OPSEU encourages its members to fill out their forms and continue a 350-year tradition.
The information gathered through the census provides a statistical snapshot of the country. It is a useful tool for all levels of government. The data is essential for planning for all public services, from childcare and schooling to public transportation, housing, and health care.
We all have a civic responsibility to fill out the census – plus, it’s required by law! All information provided will be kept confidential.
