EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order.)

Proposal

This Order repeals Order in Council P.C. 2015-789 of June 10, 2015, fixes May 2016 as the month in which Statistics Canada will conduct the 2016 Census of Population pursuant to subsection 19(1) of the Statistics Act, and prescribes the schedules for the 2016 Census of Population, as provided by section 7 of the Statistics Act. All questions following Question 10 of the schedule constitute the 2016 Census of Population long form (National Household Survey) and will be asked pursuant to section 22 of the Statistics Act by the Chief Statistician acting under the direction of the Minister in conjunction with the questions prescribed by this order.

Background

The Statistics Act specifies that the Census of Population shall be taken by Statistics Canada every five years in a month to be fixed by the Governor in Council (subsection 19(1)) and gives the Minister responsible for Statistics Canada the authority to prescribe the rules, instructions, forms, and schedules to carry out the work of Statistics Canada (section 7). The Statistics Act also requires that the questions included in the Census of Population shall be prescribed by order of the Governor in Council and published in the Canada Gazette (section 21).

All residents of Canada are legally required to complete the census questionnaire, according to the Statistics Act. Statistics Canada is bound by law to protect the confidentiality of the information respondents provide in the census. Every household in Canada is included, as well as Canadians and their families who are working abroad for the federal, provincial, and territorial governments, Canadian embassies or the Canadian Armed Forces.

Implications

The Census of Population collects demographic and linguistic information on every person living in Canada. It is the main source of data available in a standardized format for small geographical areas. It provides nationally comparable data that can be cross-classified to show details. The Census of Population is taken to meet statutory requirements as well as to support decision-making by both the public and private sectors. The questions for the 2016 Census of Population are the same as the 2011 Census of Population. Minor modifications have been made to the instructions.

To substantially reduce the burden on Canadians, and improve the quality of income data compared to previous censuses, Statistics Canada will use income and benefits data from the Canada Revenue Agency for all census respondents to replace questions previously asked on the 2011 National Household Survey questionnaire.

The month of May is proposed to maintain comparability of the data with previous censuses that have been conducted in the same month, comparability being a key requirement for users.

Consultations

To determine the questions to be asked in the 2016 Census of Population, Statistics Canada conducted comprehensive consultations with 293 organizations, including 38 federal departments, 136 provincial/territorial and municipal government organizations, Aboriginal organizations, organizations representing official language minority communities, organizations representing or providing services to Canadians with disabilities, immigrant communities, academia, and non-profit organizations.

There was overall support for the content included in the 2011 Census and no new priority data needs were identified during consultations. The final report entitled Census Program Content Consultation Report, Census year 2016 can be viewed on the Statistics Canada Web site at http://www12.statcan.gc.ca/census-recensement/2016/consultation/contentReport-RapportContenu/index-eng.cfm

The general public was also invited to participate in online consultations. Consultations for the 2016 Census of Population occurred from December 2010 to November 2012. Testing of the questions occurred between June 2013 and May 2014.
