The 2016 Census is coming!
Canada's next census will be conducted in May 2016. Early in May, census packages will be delivered to households across Canada, providing residents with the information they need to complete their questionnaire online or on paper. Completed questionnaires will provide valuable information that will be used by all levels of government, businesses, associations, community organisations and many others to make decisions about your neighbourhood and community. Information obtained through the census is needed to plan services such as child care, schooling, family services, housing, public transportation and skills training for employment. Every person, young and old, must be included in the 2016 Census. We hope you can support us in informing the community of the census and its importance, and in encouraging members of Canadian communities to complete the census questionnaires when they receive them in early May. Communications products for this part of the campaign can be accessed through the <http://www.census.gc.ca/ccr16z/ccr16z_002-eng.html>Community
