The 2021 Census of Population – begins soon – May 2021
Every five years, Canadians are invited to participate in the Census to help paint a portrait of Canada's diverse population and the places where we live.  Governments, businesses, associations, community organizations, and many others use information from the Census to make important decisions for your community, province, and the country as a whole. The information you provide ensures that the 2021 Census of Population accurately reflects Canada's changing society. Your responses are vital for planning services that support employment, schools, public transportation, and hospitals. IMPORTANT INFORMATION: When completing the census questionnaire, it is very important to ensure that you provide the correct physical municipal address for your residence in the municipality for which you reside. You may have an Alberta Beach mailing address; however, your physical municipal address may be in another municipality, such as the Summer Village of Sunset Point, the Summer Village of Val Quentin, or Lac Ste. Anne County.

Municipal Leaders Launch COVID-19 Media Campaign

In the wake of Alberta's recent declaration of a State of Public Health Emergency due to COVID-19, Lac Ste. Anne County Council is working with the autonomous towns and summer villages within its borders to reinforce the importance of universal public compliance with the heightened provincial restrictions.

Bend the Curve, the joint municipal media campaign reminds community members of the power they possess to bend the curve downward on COVID-19 numbers. It also sends a message of gratitude to locals who already support the greater social good by heeding the public health restrictions.

Awareness of this messaging is being supported via web and social media channels of the County and partner municipalities including Mayerthorpe, Onoway and Alberta Beach. A digital ad campaign has also been launched in an effort to reach every household in the region during the holiday season.

An informational microsite has been launched by the partner municipalities at bendthecurve.ca. The site breaks down the provincial regulations in simple terms, and provides some sobering local numbers to drive home the importance of heeding the health restrictions. It also leverages important regional data and resources, including daily updates from Alberta's Chief Medical Officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw.
