Census 2006

Valuable information on the arts and culture

Just a short note to encourage members of the Canadian arts community to fill out your Census questionnaires as fully and accurately as possible - especially those of you who receive the longer Census form, which contains a number of work-related questions.

As many of you know, Hill Strategies Research has used past Census information to examine the situation of artists and cultural workers in . We hope to do the same with 2006 Census information.

Accuracy and full participation are crucial! Census day is Tuesday, May 16th. If your household has not received a Census questionnaire by May 13, please contact Statistics Canada at 1-877-594-2006.

For the first time this year, you have the option of completing your Census information online, using a code included on your Census form.
