2021 Census of Population Content Consultation

Consultation objectives

Before each census, Statistics Canada initiates an extensive consultation program that allows data users and interested parties across Canada to share their views on how they use census data and the type of information they believe should be available from the census.

Statistics Canada is also seeking ideas for new or modified census content, as well as data sources that could be used to supplement or replace current content, to ensure that census information remains relevant for the people and organizations that use it.

How to get involved

The consultation is being conducted using an electronic questionnaire, which is accessible through the Statistics Canada website for the general public and all other census data users until February 9, 2018.

For more information, please visit the 2021 Census of Population Content Consultation web page.

If you would like to provide us with further feedback or suggestions on content for the 2021 Census of Population, please contact the census consultation team by email at: statcan.2021censusconsultation-consultationrecensement2021.statcan@canada.ca
