Census Community Supporter Toolkit

The census is one of the most important sources of data for our country. Census data help Canadians make important decisions that impact our families, our communities and our businesses.

Statistics Canada is launching the Census Community Supporter Toolkit to provide you with tools and resources, such as web images, email templates, social media content, articles and newsletter content in one convenient location to help you share information about the upcoming data releases with your networks.

Share the news with your networks and keep coming back! The toolkit will be updated regularly.
