Census Changes

Description

VICTORIA - 2011 is a census year in Canada. Statistics Canada collects data every 5 years. The mandatory short form can be filled out online and takes a few minutes. The long form has been replaced with a voluntary National Household Survey that asks many more questions -- from the length of your work commute, to your income and even wants to know how many rooms there are in your house. It will cost $600 million dollars to conduct the census. Data from the surveys will be made public next year. Federal transfer payments and even the distribution of Members of Parliament are determined by the census. For more information call 1-877-777-2011.
