Interested in helping Airdrie get the information we need to plan for the needs of our community? Become a Census Enumerator (worker) from April 1 to May 16, 2024. Information gathered in the municipal census influence decisions regarding future transportation networks, the locations of schools, parks, utilities, and fire protection facilities. 

Here's an overview of our enumerator positions:

  • Being an enumerator involves a great deal of walking, in all types of weather.
