How has the Canadian family changed over the years? Statistics tells us that theyâ€™re getting smaller and more diverse, that more young adults are living at home and that by 2031, 60 per cent of Canadaâ€™s population is expected to be a visible minority.
All this information is provided by Statistics Canada, which conducts a census every five years to provide a clear and up-to-date portrait of this country and its population. As the federal agency now prepares for its 2016 Census weâ€™ve partnered with them to give you a snapshot of the Canadian family throughout the years.
Itâ€™s time to complete your 2016 Census. Itâ€™s simple, confidential and you are providing information that helps shape where you live. Complete your census online at census.gc.ca.
