Research Data Management: Manage your data

The 2021 Census is here!

Census collection begins on May 3rd. The census is one of the most important sources of statistics for our country. Data collected in the 2021 Census will be essential to evaluating the impact of COVID-19 in communities across Canada and to charting a path to recovery.

Statistics Canada has adapted the collection process to ensure that the 2021 Census is conducted throughout the country in the safest way possible. Census procedures have been redesigned to enable the majority of Canadians to complete the questionnaire through an efficient, secure and user-friendly online application.

By completing the census questionnaire, Canadians ensure that every community has the information needed to plan services that support employment, schools, public transportation and hospitals. Don’t forget to check your mail in May and complete your census online! Statistics Canada and the Census Program appreciates your support in helping us make the 2021 Census a success.
