Statistics Canada hiring students for 2016 Census data collection

Looking to improve the way your country runs and earn some extra cash doing it?

Statistics Canada is looking for students to help collect data for the 2016 Census. Hiring for the paid positions will take place until the end of June and students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

Why should you care about Census?

The 2016 Census will be conducted in May. Census counts are used to collect vital information that will be used to plan, develop and evaluate programs and services that affect Canadians – including post-secondary education, healthcare and public transportation. The data collected is also used to plan infrastructure – including schools, housing and roads.

Statistics Canada is hiring more than 35,000 people across the country for various positions. The temporary, part-time positions include flexible work hours, competitive wages and are available in both rural and urban areas.

Application information can be found on the Census website.
