I would like to thank you and your team for supporting the 2021 Census. Together, we celebrate the collective efforts of all Canadians who completed their census questionnaire. Your municipality played an important role in facilitating census collection encouraging your employees and the public they serve to participate in this national exercise. Your active support in sharing our content including emails, newsletters, social media content, and web features helped motivate and remind Canadians to complete their census questionnaire.

Participation across the country was simply outstanding. Thanks to your steadfast support, we achieved an overall collection response rate of 98.0% and an online response rate of 84.1%. This represents a new record for online response. The success of this campaign wouldn’t have been possible without your assistance and the encouragement of your municipality.

Your support has had a direct impact on gathering the data needed to plan, develop and evaluate programs and services that affect all Canadians. Census data supports numerous municipal programs related to infrastructure and public transportation, and are used to measure Canada’s sustainable development and environmental goals. Information from the 2021 Census will be particularly crucial, as it will help all levels of government evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and plan for the future.

Now that the 2021 Census cycle is complete, we are looking ahead to our census data release plan. We are proud to present “Your census, your stories: Canada’s portrait”. Our upcoming releases will provide Canadians their data in meaningful ways, including themed data sets. You can find the data release schedule on our 2021 Census dissemination planning web page.

Statistics Canada remains committed to supporting all levels of government with accurate and detailed sociodemographic data to inform public policy and program development. New quality indicators will be included with the data products, helping users to better assess the data quality and determine how well the available information meets their needs. Dissemination products for the 2021 Census will include more value-added features and tools for you to benefit from, such as analytical products, reference materials, data visualizations, geography products and custom services.

We previously sent you the Community Supporter Toolkit and we want to hear your feedback. We’re interested in learning how you shared our tools to spread the word about the 2021 Census. Which products did you find useful? Do you have any recommendations for how we could improve? Please let us know by emailing our Census Communications team at

For the latest 2021 Census information and developments, I invite you to visit our Census of Population and Census Engagement web pages and follow us on social media.

To highlight your support of the 2021 Census, I’ve attached a supporter badge that you can use in emails, presentations and share with your networks on your website or social media platforms.

Thank you again for your significant support in ensuring the success of the 2021 Census and please pass along my thanks to your staff.

Canada is safely managing its radioactive waste today and already has several long-term plans and projects in place. However, there are some gaps in addressing certain streams, specifically low-level and intermediate-level radioactive waste, that need an integrated, long-term strategy. The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) has been asked by the Minister of Natural Resources Canada to lead the development of this strategy by engaging with Canadians and Indigenous peoples. 

Help us create a safe, integrated, long-term strategy for radioactive waste in Canada

Please share your thoughts on the best options to ensure all of Canada's radioactive waste is managed safely, responsibly, and effectively long after we're gone by clicking on the following survey link:
