FOR THE TEACHER




How to help your students
complete the Census
First, make sure that the student is the person in the household who should complete the census.
One access code was sent to each household (some received just the access code; others received the
access code and the paper questionnaire), and only one person in each household should complete the
census. If a student is certain that no-one in the household received the access code, and they do not
have a census form, they should call 1.877.777.2011 (help in 44 languages).

Next, having carefully reviewed both the paper and on-line census, it is strongly recommended that ESL
students complete the on-line survey during class time. Put simply, the on-line survey is much easier to
use: for example, the on-line tool recalls the names of the people in the household and asks question
about them by name, which is much easier to follow. The on-line form is also much faster to complete.

Finally, the census is recommended for classroom time because it provides an excellent ESL teaching
opportunity. This kit provides the materials needed to understand how to complete the form, and builds
on the opportunity with additional lessons.



How to use this kit while assisting students to complete the census

The questions in this kit are the same as the print form and on-line questionnaire, in the same order
— but they look different. This kit was developed using preliminary materials sent out by Statistics
Canada earlier this year. The materials, and translations in 33 languages, are available at
http://census2011.gc.ca/

How long does it take to complete the census?


There are about 15 questions in the main census. An instructor should be able to have all students
complete the census within a 50-minute period.



What if my student is selected to do the additional “Household Survey”?


The additional “Household Survey” is long and complicated. It is unlikely that a teacher will be able
to assist students to complete it within a 50-minute period. Students can get started, and choose to
finish it later (the on-line version allows users to exit and then pick up where they left off later on).

Students who are selected to complete the “Household Survey” should call 1.877.777.2011 for
assistance in their first language. Help is available in 44 languages, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Teachers may want to take a moment to stress that Statistics Canada does not share information
with other government agencies. Students may be apprehensive to answer questions about family
members, their past addresses, their income, their childcare costs, etc. You may want to print
out basic information about the purpose of the census, in students’ home language, from
http://census2011.gc.ca/ccr05/ccr05_000-eng.htm



Parting thoughts: First, do the census yourself.


Teachers may find it helpful to complete the on-line and/or paper census for their own households
before teaching students how to do it during class time. Especially with the paper questionnaire, it is
easy to get confused (was my son person 4, or was that my daughter)?

The census serves many purposes in Canada, and is an excellent teaching opportunity. Enjoy!

FOR THE TEACHER, FROM STATISTICS CANADA




About the Census
Every five years Statistics Canada conducts a census. The next Census of Canada will take place
on May 10, 2011.



Why is the census important?

When you complete your census questionnaire you are providing important information that will
be used in making decisions—for your neighbourhood, your community, your province, and the
country as a whole.

Communities depend on census information when planning for new schools, roads, waterworks,
public transit, and police and fire services. Town planners use census information on households
and families to plan current and future housing needs, health care, and day-care centres.

Population estimates obtained from the census are used to allocate transfer payments from the
federal government to the provinces and territories and from the provinces to municipalities.

As a decennial census, data from the 2011 Census will be used to determine the number of
Members of Parliament.



Who is included in the census?

The census includes every person living in Canada, as well as Canadians who are abroad, either
on a military base, attached to a diplomatic mission, or at sea or in port aboard Canadian-
registered merchant vessels. Persons in Canada including those holding a temporary resident
permit, study permit or work permit, and their dependents, are also part of the census.



The 2011 Census online

Starting in May 2011, households can choose the convenience of completing their census
questionnaire online. It is an easy, secure and convenient option that can be used anywhere,
anytime. No pre-registration or lengthy download processes are required.

                 Only if you mark “YES” to this question will your census responses and family
                 history be part of the historical record of Canada. A “YES” means your census
                 responses will be available to family members and historical researchers, 92 years
                 after the 2011 Census, in 2103.
                 If you mark “NO” or leave the answer blank, your census responses will never be
                 made available to future generations.
                 Does this person agree to make his or her 2011 Census information available in
