It's time to count yourself in as the as the 2019 Census kicks off in Lethbridge today.
Lethbridge residents will receive a white card at their door containing a Personal Identification Number (PIN) which can be used to complete their census online at: www.lethbridge.ca/census. The cards will be delivered April 1-4.
"The purpose of the Census is to help the City of Lethbridge maximize the per-capita funding we receive from the provincial and federal governments." says Deputy City Clerk David Sarsfield. "These funds are used for community facility projects such as the new West Lethbridge Fire Station and Legacy Park in North Lethbridge."
Whether completing the census online or at the door, residents will be asked to answer three brief questions about their address: sex, age and the number of residents in each household. Census takers will be in the community for the first three weeks of April and will be wearing photo identification. All information provided during this process is confidential and secure.
For any residents unable to complete the Census online, door-to-door Census collection begins April 5, 2019.
