Census Day 2011: Make your mark in history!

Census Day in Canada is Tuesday, May 10. Canadians will receive the information brochure in the mail this week. It provides instructions from Statistics Canada about completing the census online, and how to order a paper form over the telephone if you prefer.

Regardless of the method you choose, please remember to check the “YES” box for the question that will allow your information to be released to the public in 92 years.

If you don’t check the “YES” box, Statistics Canada will consider that you have said “NO” and your information will not be available to historians and genealogists in the future. And the “picture” of Canada in 2011 will be less complete.

Make sure you (and your friends, relatives, and neighbours) make your mark in history. Check YES!
