Statistics Canada jobs for Indigenous Peoples —Make a lasting contribution to your community!
The census counts every person in Canada and provides high-quality data that your community can use to plan housing, emergency services, employment skills programs, schools, daycare, and more.
Canada’s next census will take place in the spring of 2021. We are hiring approximately 32,000 people to collect data across Canada, including in Indigenous communities.
Job start and end dates vary by position and location, but are between March and July 2021. As an Indigenous community member, you are best suited to collect census data from local inhabitants and verify that all dwellings are counted. Use your local knowledge while sharpening skills that are sought-after by employers.
In the current context of COVID-19, we are committed to ensuring the safety of our employees at all times. Be part of a team of workers who communicate with residents to collect census questionnaires, or apply to be a supervisor who trains and leads a team.
Supervisors are paid $21.77 per hour, and enumerators (or equivalent) are paid $17.83 per hour. In select northern and remote communities, supervisors are paid $31.25 per hour, and enumerators (or equivalent) are paid $29.25 per hour. Employees are paid for authorized expenses.
Applicants must be • 18 years of age or older • a Canadian citizen or otherwise eligible to work in Canada • available to work flexible hours during days, evenings and weekends. If you’re interested in working in your community and making a real difference, then this opportunity is right for you! Apply online at www.census.gc.ca/jobs.
