This May, your invitation to participate in the online 2021 Census will arrive in the mail

The Government of Canada uses census information to plan community programs and services, such as employment, public transit, schools, hospitals, and more.


You count.

Be counted!

The last census underreported Jewish Canadians by a large margin, impeding our community’s ability to address important issues we all care about, such as antisemitism, security, housing, healthcare, and fighting poverty.

One in every four census questionnaires is the long-form version and will include questions about ethnicity (Q.23) and religion (Q.30). 

It is important for Jewish Canadians to be recognized by the Government of Canada as a thriving, growing, and engaged community. If being counted as part of the Jewish community in Canada is important to you, you may respond “Jewish” to Question 23, Question 30, or both.                #2021Census                Privacy Policy
