Federal Census
When will the results be available?

According to the Statistics Canada website, 2016 Census population counts are to be released on February 8, 2017. 

Why is the census important?

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.

Census information is important for your community and is used in planning services such as schools, public transportation, senior housing and police and fire services.

Population estimates obtained from the census are used to allocate transfer payments from the federal government to the provinces and territories, and from the provinces to municipalities.

Who is included in the Census?

The census includes every person living in Canada, as well as Canadians who are abroad, either on a military base, attached to a diplomatic mission, or at sea or in port aboard Canadian-registered merchant vessels. Persons in Canada – including those holding a temporary resident permit, study permit or work permit, and their dependents – are also part of the census.
