Statistics Canada conducts a census every five years.

The next Census of Population will take place in May 2016.

The census collects demographic information on every man, woman and child living in Canada. Information from the census will be used by governments, businesses, associations, community organizations and many others to make important decisions for your community, your province or territory, and the entire country.

The census is looking to hire for numerous positions across Canada. To find out more, visit the census website.
