Stats Can Looks for Census Enumerators
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.
