National 2021 Census of Population Content Consultation By News Desk Posted on November 24, 2017 2 min read 0 0 830 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr 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. Statistics Canada is also seeking ideas for new or modified census content, as well as data sources that could be used to supplement or replace current content, to ensure that census information remains relevant for the people and organizations that use it. The consultation will be conducted using an electronic questionnaire, which will be accessible through the Statistics Canada website for the general public and all other census data users from Monday, September 11, 2017, to Friday, December 8, 2017. Why user consultation is important The information gathered during consultation will help Statistics Canada ensure that data needs of Canadians are met, and that emerging social and economic issues are reflected in the census. The information you provide will be carefully reviewed and will assist in determining content for the 2021 Census of Population. Protecting your information Statistics Canada is committed to respecting the privacy of its 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.
