We are recruiting census takers/enumerators for the 2017 civic census data collection.

Applications are open January 23 to February 9, 2017.




Starting in late April, Census Takers will go door-to-door visiting homes in their assigned area to collect census and voter registration information using tablets.


Consider applying to become a Census Taker if you are:
  • 18 years of age or older.
  • Available to collect census information starting late April.
  • Able to complete online training at home and in-person in March.
  • Able to walk in seasonable weather conditions.
  • Able to operate a tablet (training is provided).

Applications are accepted in-person only and a written assessment test must be completed on-site at that time.



You can download the application form here and complete it before you arrive in person at the Election and Census Office at 1103 55 Av NE.
