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.
For more information, please visit the 2021 Census of Population Content Consultation web page.
How to get involved
This consultation is now closed.
Consultation on the content of the 2021 Census of Population through an online questionnaire is no longer available. Statistics Canada collected a wealth of information from data users and interested parties across Canada who shared their views on how they use census data and the type of information they believe should be available from the census. Statistics Canada thanks all those who participated in the consultation.
