OTTAWA — Statistics Canada is pleased to announce its ongoing 2021 Census of Population content consultation.

Before each census, Statistics Canada initiates an extensive consultation program that enables Canadians to provide valuable information on their census data needs. Participants can give examples of how they use data and provide information about data sources that could supplement or replace existing census information. They can also suggest content changes or additions for the 2021 Census of Population and comment on the relevance of the current census content.

Statistics Canada is seeking feedback from representatives in federal, provincial, territorial and municipal governments; First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities and organizations; academics; non-governmental organizations; private businesses; and the general public.

Participants can fill out the electronic questionnaire on Statistics Canada’s website until Friday, December 8, 2017.
