I am pleased to inform you that the next census will take place in May 2021. I am writing to seek your support in our campaign to increase awareness of the census among members and clients of your organization.
Statistics Canada will be hiring approximately 32,000 people across the country to assist in census data collection activities. We would like to work with you and your organization to ensure that your members and clients are aware of these job opportunities.
Additionally, your support in encouraging members of your network to complete the census will have a direct impact on gathering the data needed to plan, develop, and evaluate relevant programs and services.
Census information is vital for all communities for planning schools, daycare, housing, hospitals, emergency services, roads, public transportation, and employment skills training. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Statistics Canada has adapted to ensure that the 2021 Census is conducted throughout the country in the best possible way, using a safe and secure approach.
In the coming weeks, a member of our communications team may contact you to discuss ways in which we can work together. Should you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website.
Thank you in advance for supporting the 2021 Census.
Geoff Bowlby, Director General
