If you like to listen to music while you do things, the Canada census for 2021 had a bunch of playlists created for it with songs from Canadian artists so that you can listen to homegrown talent while you fill out the questionnaire.
The playlists are available on Spotify and YouTube and are meant to help you "experience the different facets of Canadian culture through the sounds of our celebrated musical talent."
Eleven playlists were created that include songs from different genres including pop, electronic, soul, alternative, folk, country, rock, rap and hip-hop from Canadian, French-Canadian and Indigenous artists.
If it's your first time filling out the census, there are some things you need to know. It's sent out every five years to learn about the population, you'll either have to do the short or long questionnaire, and an access code will come in the mail so you can complete it online.
Why You Need To Go: Hike your way to Buffalo Crag lookout, where you'll be treated to sweeping views of the escarpment. The area is located less than an hour from the city, and reservations are required.
Why You Need To Go: Tucked away in Spencer Gorge Conservation Area, Dundas Peak offers towering views of the escarpment and Hamilton. The hike is just under an hour from Toronto, and it will even take you past a 41-metre waterfall. Reservations are required.
Why You Need To Go: Take in soaring views of Buttermilk Valley on this giant trestle bridge, which sits 29 metres above the land below. It can be found along the Kawartha Trans Canada Trail about an hour and a half from Toronto.
The exact harvesting dates depend on the weather, but typically strawberries are available in mid-June, raspberries in July, and blueberries in August. But it is a smart idea to check with the farm first to check the crop is ready.
