Stats and I never got along. I never understood the reasoning of some of the odd questions they ask, but I always fill mine in. Getting an accurate snapshot of Canada is never a bad thing IMO.

Imagine asking your roommate those questions as in #13 to about #35. (Seriously, read them)
I actually forwarded this to ctv news about these questions being no ones business but the roommates. See if they get back to me.

The government already knows all that stuff anyway. :D

People shouldn't be so flippant about the census. Its used to determine several things including tax spending, transfer payments and future planning for things like health care and labour markets. It provides a snapshot of the population and demographics across the country. It helps decide, for example, schools based on areas with a high density of young families... or agriculture spending in areas high a high population of people in farming.. etc.

If you're not counted then your needs might be overlooked. Its not a joke.

It seems like the only thing they care about in this census is what gender I identify as.

And what gender you were when you were born.

I put my 2 year old down as transgender. Ask stupid questions, you get stupid answers...


Note: I did not do that, but I guarantee that some people will do this because they're tired of the woke BS.

Here is a article from MP Tracy Gray's office

The 1877 855 2021 phone number provided in the article is out of service.

Of course that number is out of service - it's not the correct number. The number shown in the article is 1-877-885-2021 and when/if you call it, you'll get the "welcome to the questionnaire assistance line" message.

Sorry my typo. 885 It was out of service all week. Thanks....now I will try them again. It was working for a day last week....then not. The 1855 340 2021 'if you have questions' number works but I gave up after being on hold for 40 min. Need a paper copy.
