APRIL 3 IS CENSUS DAY

1, 2, Done

April 3 is Cochrane’s official census day. Answering questions online means Cochrane residents can provide their information in less than one minute.

Residents have until April 30 to count themselves in.

Door hangers with unique identification information are being delivered to homes in Cochrane starting April 3; that PIN and a computer is all residents need to participate.

Computers are available at the Cochrane Public Library and FCSS for census use. Enumerators will go door to door beginning April 17 for those who haven’t responded online.

Many provincial government grants are awarded on a per capita basis —a precise census count ensures the Town receives the maximum funding the community is entitled to.

Census results are submitted to Alberta Municipal Affairs once all the data is in; population numbers become official once the report is accepted by the province.

Cochrane’s official population in 2016 was 25,122
