CDP members, and the public at large, have until Dec 8 to provide feedback for the next census. Let Statistics Canada know how you use the census and what information would be helpful for your community to have.
From Statistics Canada:
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.
From the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) and Statistics Canada:
Core housing need is the indicator used in Canada to identify households not living in, and not able to access acceptable housing. It describes households living in dwellings considered inadequate in condition, not suitable in size, and unaffordable.
