Civic Census Takers Required

Interested in doing a job that counts? The City of Calgary needs Census Takers to visit all homes in assigned areas beginning April 1

If you would like to be a part of the team that collects valuable information used in many aspects of City planning and service delivery, apply in person at The City of Calgary, Election and Information Services office at 1103 55th Avenue NE beginning January 17 to February 4, Monday to Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. For more information, call 403-476-4100 (Option 3).

Applicants will be required to complete a short written assessment test that takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.  

In order to apply to be a Census Taker you must be: 
  • 18 years of age or over.
  • able to walk in seasonable weather conditions.
  • available to attend a two hour daytime training session in March.
  • available to attend a ½ hour check-in and material review appointment in April. 
Assigned census areas vary in size, but are generally between 400 to 600 dwellings.  Census Takers set their own schedule to complete their assigned area and may be required to work in the evenings and on weekends when most people are at home.  In general, the data collection takes about three weeks.
