Blackfalds census coming

Head counters will be door-knocking around Blackfalds starting on May 4. And there’s an online census, too. Starting on April 29, enumerators will deliver to each residence a census letter with instructions and a personal identification number. The PIN is specific to each address. Residents can get on the census website starting on May 4, giving them three weeks to finish.

Residents who can’t finish the census online by then will be visited by an enumerator by May 27. Enumerators will have Town of Blackfalds photo ID badges.

The information is used to get an official count of the population, dwelling units and it also gives timely demographic information for community planning and budget decisions on services and facilities.

Eligible voter information will be collected, as well as data regarding pets and the number of pre-school children, including school system support.

All census information is confidential and all information collected is covered by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
