In November 2019, City Council approved a motion to cancel conducting a census in 2020.
Why Does the City Conduct a Census?
The City conducts a Census every two years.
Many provincial and federal grants are awarded based on the population count determined by the Census. It is important that we get updated data on our population, so we can maximize grant funding. Census information is also used as a foundation for planning new community programs and services and for enhancing existing ones such as transportation, schools, utilities, emergency services, recreational facilities and economic development.
