If you haven't filled out your Canada census questionnaire yet, you may be getting a knock at the door soon.

On Thursday, May 20, Statistics Canada published a news release to let Canadians know that enumerators are going to begin following up at people's homes. The agency says that this will start in late May. There is still the opportunity to fill your Census out online if you didn't receive one in the mail or didn't get around to filling it out.

In regards to how the in-person follow-ups will work with COVID-19, there will be a number of precautions taken under the new "non-contact protocol."

Everything will be done outside, enumerators won't visit institutional collective dwellings, the interviews will be physically distanced, and census employees will be wearing masks.

The census is mandatory in Canada and there are even fines for failing to complete it.
