Statistics Canada is currently testing the use of text messages as an additional way to reach selected survey participants. As a result, selected participants may receive text messages from Statistics Canada inviting them to go to our website to complete a survey questionnaire. This will help to ensure we have high participation rates for our surveys, which will allow us to continue to produce high-quality data.
Some Statistics Canada surveys can be completed online. If you have been invited, via email or mail, to participate in an online survey, complete the following steps to log in to the survey.
Step 1: Visit the electronic questionnaire portal and select Start my survey.
