Statistics Canada Census Teacher's Kit

The Statistics Canada Census Teacher's Kit is provided free of charge, for use in elementary, intermediate and secondary schools, as well as for adult education classes across the country. Students play important roles as future respondents to the census and translators to parents whose language skills are not strong in either of Canada's official languages.

Each Teacher’s Kit contains eight teacher-ready activities and a guide that provides:

  • an explanation of why Canada conducts a census and how census results benefit us all
  • an introduction to census data as an information source for school papers and projects
  • an alternative approach to studying mathematics, geography, English, French, and social sciences
  • an introduction to data available on the Statistics Canada website
  • a colouring book and activity sheet for younger students.

More information.

Order online.


Electronic (PDF) versions of the kits will be available for download starting October, 2010 at http://www.census2011.gc.ca


Census Geography

Census geography covers a wide range of geographic areas – from provinces and territories down to city blocks. These geographic areas have boundaries, names, and other information that make it possible to locate them on the ground and relate census data to them. More info.
