Census Worker

Census Workers go door-to-door visiting homes to collect census information using tablets. To be successful, Census Workers manage their own hours which may vary during the day, evening and on weekends between 9 am and 9 pm to ensure completion within the collection period beginning April 22, 2019. Census Workers will be required to provide regular communication and updates to the On-street Supervisor. Census Workers work mid-April through May until their areas are complete.

Census On-street Supervisor (New for 2019)

Census On-street Supervisors will be responsible for regular communication with a group of Census Workers and provide support for questions/concerns about the job. They will provide on-site supervision, daily check-ins and will complete the Provincially mandated audit of a specified area.

All positions above require that you are a self starter, well organized, good attention to detail and are comfortable communicating with members of the public.
