New Brunswick Population and Agriculture Censuses Just Weeks Away
The New Brunswick government says the next Census of Population will take place in May 2016.
The next Census of Agriculture will also take place in May. The Census of Agriculture collects information on every agricultural operation in Canada. Starting May 2, 2016, agricultural operators who intend to sell at least one agricultural product are required to complete a Census of Agriculture questionnaire. The Census of Agriculture can also be completed online or on paper.
Census representatives are visiting visit households in First Nations communities in April to complete census questionnaires with local residents. Census information is inportant for planning services such as housing, employment, education, health care and other initiatives related to the well-being of residents in First Nations communities.
The census questions have been translated into 11 Aboriginal languages, allowing respondents to read them in their own language.
