2021 Census of Population Content Consultation

Before each census, Statistics Canada initiates an extensive consultation program that allows data users and interested parties across Canada to share their views on

  • how they use census data, and
  • the type of information they believe should be available from the census.

Due to the high level of interest from the public, the 2021 Census of Population content consultations have been extended until February 9, 2018.

Automatic enrolment starting for Guaranteed Income Supplement

Over the past 2 years we have noticed that many of our most vulnerable seniors in Mississauga East-Cooksville didn’t know that the Guaranteed Income Supplement exists or how to apply for it. We had to work with our eligible seniors to submit their applications and follow-up with Service Canada to ensure they are paid. Back in Ottawa, we discussed these concerns with the Minister’s office. Now, we’re fixing that, by making enrolment automatic.
