This census help guide will take you step by step through joining data to boundary shapefiles. Once you have downloaded Census or National Household Survey (NHS) data in .dbf format, you can join it to a shapefile and map it.

**For a slightly different workflow using census data in Excel format, watch this University of Toronto Mississauga video.

If you have any issues with this process or further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us!
