Stats Can Looks for Census Enumerators

Wednesday, January 6, 2016 @ 3:59 AM

Prince George, B.C.- The call is out for  those who would  like to land a temporary job for the 2016 census.

35 thousand jobs will be open  for  the  census and applications can be  filed  with  an   Online Recruitment Application.

Depending on the  type of job,  the  duration  of the employment will be early March to the end of July.  The pay rate is  $16.31 per hour to $19.91 per hours, plus authorized expenses.

While most  of the  jobs won’t start  until  later this spring,  there will be early enumeration  in remote  areas of the far north and some communities  in Northern Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec and Labrador.

There  is also an open call for applications for  1,400 temporary jobs at the Census Date Operations Centres in Gatineau Quebec and in Ottawa.

The return to the full census  is another of the Trudeau Government  election promises.   Statisticians  had  complained that the short  form voluntary  household questionnaire  used under the  previous government  did not  provide  enough returns to be statistically accurate.

36,400 jobs for five months at between $16.00 to $19.00 per hour amounts to a pretty hefty sum of money.

Hopefully this expenditure will produce the desired results.

On another note, it seems that Trudeau’s election promise to legalize marijuana is not going to fly because of all the agreements we have with other trading Countries. Seems we signed all these agreements agreeing to the criminalizing of Mary Jo. and there is no quick way we can get out of them. At best it will take years, so don’t hold your breath waiting. PS. These agreements were not signed by the Harper Government.

This is just one more of what is becoming a long list of Trudeau promises during the election that they cannot keep.

Palopu, I don’t believe your point of Marijuana is correct. It’s already legal in Washington and Colorado. USA is part of the TPP.

We’re not forcing countries to accept our marijuana haha.

So the Liberal govn’t is the first to have a census? haha

pgjohn – it is technically illegal in the U.S.. The US federal law enforcement will charge you in Washington State if you are found in possession. What’s happening down there, is the State is saying it’s legal – and the State didn’t sign the treaty, and the State is refusing to enforce federal law, and the federal law enforcement is turning a blind eye. So they are in technical compliance with the treaties because federally it’s illegal.

And whatever you do, don’t drive from Nevada to Utah with a joint in your car. A Utah State trooper will definitely arrest you.

If we weren’t saddled with RCMP, B.C. could do it without federal consent just by directing municipal police forces not to enforce the federal law.

I’m not sure that it is a huge problem to withdraw from the provisions of those treaties with respect to marijuana. There are a number of substances whose legal status varies from country to country. When this is recognized when a treaty is being negotiated, some countries subscribe to the treaty with reservations. Making such changes after a treaty is in force is more difficult, but not impossible.
