Census 2016 will travel to First Nations communities in April
Statistics Canada will be travelling to First Nations communities across Canada this month to help indigenous residents participate in the 2016 census.
Although the census begins in May 2016 across most of the country, census representatives will visit households in First Nations communities in April to complete census questionnaires.
Statistics Canada said census information is vital for planning services such as housing, employment, education, health care and other initiatives related to the well-being of residents in First Nations communities.
The census questions have been translated into 11 Aboriginal languages, allowing respondents to read them in their own language.
