The annual Lethbridge census is now underway, and it’s time to count yourself in.
Lethbridge residents should have received a white card at their door containing a Personal Identification Number (PIN) which can be used to complete their census online at: www.lethbridge.ca/census. So far, more than 30 per cent of city households have completed the census online using their PIN cards.
For any residents unable to complete the census online, door-to-door census collection started April 4, 2016.
“The purpose of the census is to help the City of Lethbridge maximize the per-capita funding we receive from other orders of government.” says Deputy City Clerk David Sarsfield. “These funds are used for community facility projects such as the Crossings Leisure Complex, the Lethbridge Police Headquarters Expansion, and the Henderson Pool Renovations.”
Whether completing the census online or at the door, residents will be asked to answer just four brief questions about their address, gender, age and the number of residents in each household. Census takers will be in the community for the first three weeks of April and will be wearing photo identification. All information provided during this process is confidential and secure.
The City’s population in 2015 was 94,804.
