Census 2020 Information
It's Census time! and you may have already received a questionnaire in the mail. While some operations have been adjusted in interest of "protecting the health and safety of our staff and the public", the Census is still available online and so far, the last day to complete the Census questionnaire is still July 31, with the understanding that this could change should circumstances change.
