Statistics Canada is looking to hire 35,000 people for this year’s census.
Of those jobs, 1,400 will be at StatsCan’s census operations centers in Ottawa and Gatineau, the agency said on its website. The remaining jobs, mostly for census-takers, will be located across the entire country.
The census jobs will begin in April or May. But StatsCan is also planning to hold early enumeration in some rural parts of the country, and those jobs have to be in place by February. The agency is offering a pay rate of $16.31 to $19.91 per hour.
