It’s easy, secure and only takes a minute – there’s just a couple days left to complete the 2016 municipal census online. Residents can use the online tool at http://www.reddeer.ca/census to complete the census questions until midnight on Thursday.

After April 14, the online tool will close and enumerators will be going door-to-door to households that have yet to submit their answers. Residents can also call in to the census office at 403-342-8317 until May 9 to count themselves in as well.

A Personal Identification Number (PIN) was delivered to each household in Red Deer and can be used to log on and access this year’s census questions and submit answers. This year’s census will collect information on the number of people living in each household as well as their sex and year of birth. By participating in the census online, residents can also enter to win a tablet.

The City conducts the annual census to obtain an official count of the number of people living in Red Deer. Census data is crucial information for City planning and to ensure The City receives the appropriate amount of grant funding from the provincial and federal governments. For 2016, The City of Red Deer is expected to receive approximately $236.34 per capita in grant funding which will be used for community projects and initiatives.
