Register for a free series of webinars on the results of Census 2016. This is an especially remarkable occasion for 2 reasons:
1) the mandatory long-form census was re-instated.
2) the response rate was 98.4%, which is our best ever since 1666, when the colony of New France collected data on 3,215 inhabitants.
Canada’s national census happens only once every five years, and on February 8th, Statistics Canada released the first results from the 2016 tally, covering population and household counts, as well as growth patterns for all geographic areas.
In the first of a multi-part series of census webinars scheduled throughout 2017, demographic expert Dr. Doug Norris will discuss how organizations can use the census statistics to better understand their target populations – whether they are patients, citizens, or customers.
The first webinar will be held on Thursday, February 16th, at 2 pm EST. You can register for this webinar here:
