2016 Census: Collection begins in First Nations communities across Canada

April 1, 2016

OTTAWA — Statistics Canada is pleased to announce that collection for the 2016 Census starts in April for residents in First Nations communities.

Although the census begins in May 2016 across most of the country, census representatives will visit households in First Nations communities in April to complete census questionnaires with local residents. Census information is vital for planning services such as housing, employment, education, health care and other initiatives related to the well-being of residents in First Nations communities.

The census questions have been translated into 11 Aboriginal languages, allowing respondents to read them in their own language. The translated questions can be found on the census website.
