Meet Marc Hamel - Transcript

(The Statistics Canada symbol and Canada wordmark appear on screen with the title: "Faces of StatCan: A closer look at our exceptional employees! Meet Marc Hamel")

Hello, I'm Marc Hamel, and I'm one of the Faces of StatCan.

I am responsible for the Census of Population here at Statistics Canada. It is the largest program run by the department. I'm a big fan of travel and sports, any kind of sports.

I often refer to the census as the family picture. It is basically a snapshot that we take every five years that shows us who we are, how we're evolving, what we've become. And I've always been impressed by the level of commitment and engagement that people working at StatCan put into their work in the accomplishment of something like this. We really have a sense that what we do makes a difference. That's what makes me get up every day and come to work.

If I had to sum up StatCan in one word, for me it would be "engagement."
