YES, but make it an online census and emailed to those email addresses given on their income tax submissions. If needed, offer paper format to those isolated areas.

Yes, but it should only be required every 5 years, easier to complete online, the information is vital for economists, scientists, statisticians, and the government to accurately make important policy decisions, but also ensure privacy

implement a voluntary national social media/search engine platform that collects such data for such a purpose as do the large tech companies do. sell data but give profits to citizens who participate

@8VRD278from Alberta  answered…1yr

Yes, but make sure that all information will be used by the government in a legal, safe, confidential, private, medical, etc., and for the goodwill of the Canadians.

Yes, but it shouldn't be mandatory and should be easier to access online instead of people invading your home.

@8V88N2Gfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

I don't have all the information needed to have an opinion on this matter

No, Census should just be enumerating citizens for deciding how many MP Constituencies are needed.

no- and remove any questions regarding your nationality after stating that I was BORNED in Canada and have always been a Canadian (FULL STOP). My ancestry is none of the Gov business.

@8TMXHB5Greenfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

I would prefer an incentive to filling out the census, and it should not be mandatory.

@8T9RCTVfrom Alberta  answered…1yr

Yes, but modernize the census given the technology available for better data collection in 2021

@8RQTCTZLiberalfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

Yes, Only if it’s cost effective and provides insight how to better help Canadians and financial puts us ahead as a country. If not, no

@aaliyahvNew Democraticfrom New Brunswick  answered…2yrs

Yes, but make it optional with incentives for completing it. Also, explain on the form why completing it is helpful.

@8PD7DQJNew Democraticfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

Neutral. I am not educated enough on this issue to make a reasonably informed decision.

@8PC2QBMfrom Alberta  answered…2yrs

Yes but only to be completed with an added incentive and to know have consent of where data goes to,

@8PBPHPQPeople’s Partyfrom Alberta  answered…2yrs

It depends whether or not they are selling the data. Will I be discriminated against for my disability status? Will I be targeted for being gay? I need to know the information is private before I give it, or at least knowing the sources it is going to.

Have meaningful questions to non-invasively track immigrant job outcome, income inequality and etc.

@39QFQPZfrom British Columbia  answered…2yrs

@39FWSFDfrom British Columbia  answered…2yrs

Not having the long form is a disgrace to Canadian citizens. It must be reinstated. We can not collect or find out information about the basic demographics of this country.

@39L4KPGfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

Now that bill c-51 passed, the government gets all the information they could want through spying on us via internet and telephone as well as satellite surveillance and video monitoring. The government has way more information about Canadians now than ever before so reinstating the long form in the census is a non issue I feel is used by the candidates to distract from other more difficult to talk about issues like getting rid of bill c-51!

@39PSKCQfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

Yes. Citing "privacy concerns" as the reason for its removal served as a distraction to allow other forms of privacy invasion to be instated.

@8M2NFWCfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

Bring it back, make it optional with incentives for completing. As always you need to have an education component so ppl have buy-in as to why participating is helpful.

@8GYLS3Zfrom British Columbia  answered…2yrs

Its pretty inaccurate considering the amount of the population that will not complete it
