Statistics Canada is conducting a public consultation on the 2021 Census of Population from September to December 2017. We encourage you to participate in this online consultation and to forward information about the consultation to other census data users.

The online consultation questionnaire is designed to gather information about how and why Canadians use census data, the type of information they believe should be available from the census, and details of other data sources that could be used to supplement or replace current census content. The information gathered during consultation will help Statistics Canada assess the data needs of Canadians and evaluate whether emerging social and economic trends are reflected. Your feedback will help Statistics Canada determine the content of the 2021 Census of Population questionnaire.

Participation is secure 

Statistics Canada is committed to respecting the privacy of consultation participants. All personal information collected by the agency is protected by the Privacy Act.

Comments collected during the consultation may be published anonymously in the 2021 Census of Population Content Consultation Report, which will be available on the Statistics Canada website in the fall of 2019.
