Census taking kicks off Monday in County of Grande Prairie

County census workers are scheduled to hit the road on April 15th to help residents complete the census in person at the front door.

The County says all that is required of residents is the PIN card that was delivered to county residences earlier in April. Residents who have not received a PIN card by April 12th are asked to call the County Census Coordinator at (587)-726-1686.

Officials say the census is necessary to establish an official number of residents in county municipalities. Upon completion of the census, the county will use the data to better understand the community and how to serve the population as it changes.

Additionally, an official census will ensure the county receives appropriate grant funding from the province which in turn, will inform local service needs and attract new economic development opportunities.
