Plain Language Commitment

Statistics Canada is committed to communicating with Canadians and businesses in a clear and effective manner. As articulated in theCommunications Policy of the Government of Canada, to ensure clarity and consistency of information, plain language and proper grammar are used in all communication with the public. At Statistics Canada, guidance and support on this matter are provided by the Agency's Communications Division.

Correspondence with the public related to the Corporations Returns Act, such as introductory and follow-up letters, are reviewed by communications specialists prior to implementation. In addition, as required by Statistics Canada's Policy on the Review and Testing of Questionnaires, survey forms, questionnaires and schedules are reviewed by the Agency's Questionnaire Design Resource Centre to ensure they are well understood by respondents and written at the appropriate literacy level.
