The City is recruiting for census takers and enumerators to begin the door-to-door collection in late April.

Every year The City conducts an annual civic census. These numbers not only tell us Calgary’s population and growth they help us in Council work with Administration to plan for variety of programs and services. The information collected is also used by the Province for the determination of grants if they are available, and outside agencies such as school boards, communities, businesses, charities etc. As you can see these number are very important in helping us run an efficient Calgary. During an election year, voter registration is conducted during census data collection. This information helps make the voting process easier and faster on Election Day.
