O’Chiese & Sunchild-Community Announcement

 

 What is the Census of Population?

The 2016 Census of Population is a survey taken by Statistics Canada that plays a vital role in providing reliable and essential data about Canadians and their needs on a cultural, geographical and social level. These statistics help provide the building blocks for research and development within our country and communities. All responses given are equally important and this is why it is mandatory for all households in Canada to participate in the 2016 Census.

          

  Do I Have To Participate?

Yes, it is mandatory by law to participate in the 2016 Census. Please take the time to answer the survey as your answers have a direct impact on providing reliable data about your community.

           

How Does it Work?

In the next few weeks you may see Statistics Canada employees in your community. These people are hired as enumerators for the 2016 Census and are bound by law to treat all information given to them with the highest level of confidentiality. Don't be surprised if a Statistics Canada interviewer shows up at your door or contacts you by telephone in the evening or on weekends. To accommodate the respondents' busy schedules, our team of dedicated interviewers works at different times of the day, and sometimes seven days a week. Please be cooperative and patient with interviewers as they are doing their best to try to collect this information without causing inconvenience.

           

Confidentiality

The Statistics Act protects respondents' information. This information cannot be disclosed without the respondent's consent or as authorized by the Statistics Act.

The Statistics Act contains very strict confidentiality provisions that protect collected information from unauthorized access. Agencies such as the Canada Revenue Agency, the RCMP and the courts do not have access to individual survey responses.

All Statistics Canada employees take an oath of secrecy and face severe penalties for any breach of confidentiality.

 

For any further questions or concerns please contact Statistics Canada at:

  • 1 800 263-1136 - Toll-free general enquiries line
  • 1 800 363-7629 - National TTY line (teletype machine)
