Census Enumerators needed

Interested in helping Airdrie get the information we need to plan for the needs of our community? Become a Census Enumerator from April 1 to May 18, 2023, during our municipal census.

Information gathered in the municipal census influence decisions regarding future transportation networks, the locations of schools, parks, utilities, and fire protection facilities.

Census enumerators are not City employees and will not receive a Record of Employment following the Census although T4A will be issued.

Being an enumerator involves a great deal of walking, in all types of weather. Backup census enumerators also hired / assigned smaller route and fill in if needed to complete a route or for follow up work.

Our success depends on our team, training is provided for all enumerators. Legislative Services staff are available to answer questions and offer support during the course of the census period.
