Time to count yourself in, annual census now open


    The annual Lethbridge census is underway, and it’s time to count yourself in.

    Lethbridge residents will receive 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. The cards were delivered April 1-3. In 2016, 34 percent of City residents completed the census online.

    For any residents unable to complete the census online, door-to-door census collection begins Monday, April 3, 2017.

    “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 ATB Centre construction and the Yates Centre Renewal.”

    Whether completing the census online or at the door, residents will be asked to answer three brief questions about their sex, 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 Lethbridge population in 2016 was 96,828.
