North Cowichan Supports 2016 Census


North Cowichan is a proud supporter of the 2016 Canadian census, which will take place in May!
The census collects demographic information on every man, woman and child living in Canada. Information from the census is used by governments, businesses, associations, community organizations and many others to make important decisions for your community, your province or territory, and the entire country. Population estimates obtained from the census are used to allocate transfer payments from the federal government to the provinces and territories, and from the provinces to municipalities.
Did you know that Statistics Canada is hiring approximately 35,000 employees across the country to work on the collection phase of the 2016 Census? If you're interested in working directly in the community, meeting new people, or earning supplementary income, apply online atwww.census.gc.ca/jobs.
