2021 Census - As you know, census data are critical to decision makers and Canadians from coast to coast to coast. In addition to informing public policy, census data are vital for planning schools, hospitals, daycare centres, family services, public transportation, and skills training for employment. In addition, census data support numerous municipal programs related to infrastructure and public transportation and are used to measure Canada’s sustainable development and environmental goals. Information from the 2021 Census will be even more crucial because it will help your community evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and to better plan for the future.

Census collection will begin on May 3, 2021. Statistics Canada has adapted the collection process to ensure that all Canadians and our employees remain safe while participating in this vital national exercise. Data collected in the 2021 Census will inform many of the economic and health-related policy decisions that must be made by all levels of government in the coming months and years, as the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the lives of Canadians.

Statistics Canada will do everything it can to get Canadians to respond to the census without an in-person visit from a census employee. Completing the census questionnaire online is the best and fastest way to fulfill the census obligation. We anticipate that the great majority of Canadians will complete the questionnaire through our efficient, secure and user-friendly online application. Respondents without reliable access to the Internet can also call the Census Help Line to complete their census questionnaire over the phone or request a paper questionnaire.

In cases where a Statistics Canada census employee is sent to a dwelling for non-response follow-up, a new no-contact protocol will be followed. Under this protocol, no interviews will be conducted inside the respondent's dwelling. These interviews will instead be physically-distanced and the census employee will be required to wear a mask, and follow all public health guidelines.

Alberta Beach supports the 2021 Census and encourages all residents to complete their census questionnaire online at Accurate and complete census data support programs and services that benefit our community.

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 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.
