Help The City collect transportation data by opening your door for census takers

Civic census takers will be knocking on doors in all Calgary neighbourhoods now through April 22.

All census takers will have City identification badges and ask for a few minutes of your time. Answering their questions will help The City better plan programs and services that meet your needs.

Although civic census is collected annually, every third year the census also collects data about transportation. The City then uses this information to determine the best infrastructure for each community.

This year, we'll be asking what mode of transportation you use to get around Calgary. Your answers will help us monitor progress of the Calgary Transportation Plan, which provides policy direction on multiple aspects of our transportation system.

So whether you walk, ride your bike, take transit, or drive your car where you need to go, providing information to census takers will make a difference in transportation choices for Calgarians.

If you’re not home, your census taker will leave a phone number where they can be reached to arrange the completion of your census. All information you provide is secure.
