When Jean Talon conducted the first Census in New France during the winter of 1665–1666, the story is that he personally walked around and knocked on doors. Talon conducted his census on the de jure principle—that is, counting people where they normally reside.

There’s a knock on your front door. You wait, wondering if they will go away. Another knock. You pull back the curtain to check. Then, you slowly open the door.

Good news! It’s Statistics Canada!
