Every five years, Canadians are invited to participate in the census to help paint a portrait of Canada's diverse population and the places where we live. The Census of Population provides high-quality information on key trends and analysis that helps Canadians make important decisions that affect our families, our neighbourhoods and our businesses. Census day is May 11, 2021. Please remember to fill out your Census form online, as per letters that you will receive from Statistics Canada.
The Census helps the New Westminster residents, non-profit organizations and businesses by assisting the City of New Westminster in planning parks and recreation services, applying for provincial and federal government grants for projects, and understanding how to meet local needs during emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic., as well as many more tasks.
