Canada Census still needs enumerators!

May. 6/16

Thank you to all Snuneymuxw First Nation members for cooperating with Canada Census in April, 2016. To date about 25% of enumeration is complete. Thanks to all enumerators for a great job so far! It is exciting to know that people from the community are working for the Census and helping out the community.

In May we are hoping to complete a much higher percentage of enumeration so we will add some new members to the team.

So apply online if you require further assistance please contact SFN Employment Support Worker, Terena at (250) 740-2316.


Congratulations to the 4 Snuneymuxw members who will be Census Enumerators in our community

I have been a "stay at home mom" for 15 years my oldest 14 years old and my youngest in Kindergarten. As soon as my youngest Henry registered for Kindergarten I did the same too and registered to attend VIU, I am honoured to have made this job position as a Enumerator, I look forward to working and getting out into my own community and working with our own people. 




These four Enumerator’s will be coming to visit you, soon, and will review and explain the Census Data information gathering.
There are benefits of the 2016 Census for Aboriginal peoples ask your Enumerators for more information

Some questions you may want to ask your enumerator:
