Over 12,000 households in Lloydminster will receive a letter containing an fourteen-digit personal identification number (PIN), printed on fluorescent green paper for residents to easily identify. Letters will be placed in mail boxes or fastened to front doors. A unique PIN has been assigned to each household to ensure that their information is confidential. As of April 1, residents can enter their address and PIN number to complete the census survey online. The information will be stored on a secure server.

Residents are encouraged to complete their census questionnaire online prior to Thursday, April 16. Between April 16 and June 12 enumerators will visit households that have not participated in the census online. All census responses are confidential.

To ensure the City receives the maximum amount of grant funding possible, it is critical that an accurate picture of the population, as of April 1, 2015, is established.
