Imagine Canada sends letter to Prime Minister-designate on long-form census

Monday, November 2, 2015

Imagine Canada has sent a letter to Justin Trudeau expressing our support for an urgent decision to implement his party’s commitment to reinstate the long-form census.

Many charities and nonprofits use census data and census-derived data to develop and assess their approaches to ensure that the services they provide and the engagement opportunities they offer respond to the unique needs of their communities. If a decision is made soon, we understand that Statistics Canada could reinstate the long-form census in time for 2016, providing more comprehensive and accurate data on social and economic conditions and trends.
