Statistics Canada is looking for census enumerators in Port Renfrew and Jordan River.

Beginning this week, Statistics Canada will send census letters and packages to all Canadian households.

The census provides a statistical portrait of the country and its people.

In Canada, it is mandatory for all residents to participate in the census.
