OTTAWA – Looking to make a lasting contribution to Canada, its communities and its people? Join the 2016 Census early enumeration team!

Although the census begins in May 2016 across most of the country, early enumeration will begin in February 2016 in many remote and northern communities.

Staff are required to visit each household in these communities to conduct personal interviews with respondents. Data gathered from the questionnaire will provide important information that will help communities to plan for education, health care and other initiatives.

Temporary positions are available at the supervisory and non-supervisory levels, as follows:

  • Crew Leaders are responsible for all activities related to the collection of census information in an area, and will lead and supervise a team of Enumerators and one assistant.
  • Crew Leader assistants provide administrative support to a Crew Leader and his or her team of Enumerators. Responsibilities include answering telephones, preparing reports and correspondence, and relaying information from the Crew Leader to the Enumerators.
  • Enumerators work in communities to identify dwellings on maps, and complete questionnaires with local residents.

The rates of pay range from $16.31 to $19.91 an hour, plus authorized expenses. Applicants must be at least 18 years or older, eligible to work in Canada, and able to commit to at least 20 hours a week, including days, evenings, weekends and holidays, as needed. A valid driver's license and access to a vehicle may be required in certain areas. Candidates should reside in a community where early enumeration is taking place, or be available to work in remote locations as part of an enumeration team.
