What job roles are available?

The government’s job listing explains that the majority of census jobs on offer involve the “field work associated with data collection.”

This includes the supervisory role of Crew Leader and the non-supervisory role of Enumerator.

Enumerators will be required to work part-time and on a varying schedule, with the majority of work taking place during the evenings and weekends.

The role involves collecting questionnaires from households, dropping off letters related to the census, following up with respondents via phone or visiting and shipping completed documents.

Crew leaders, on the other hand, will be expected to work full-time with similar weekend and evening schedules.

Their main responsibilities will be to train, lead and supervise a team of Enumerators, while monitoring their progress and productivity.

What do I need to apply?

The government agency is looking for employees who are over the age of 18, a Canadian citizen or eligible to work in Canada and flexible/available to work between 20 and 40 hours per week.

Specific experience or qualifications are not necessary, but workers will be required to attend mandatory training sessions (which will be paid).

While applicants do not need to be bilingual to apply for a census role, some locations will be designated bilingual and will require staff to speak more than one language.

The start and end date for the role are unspecified, as it varies depending on the position’s location. That said, it will be between March and July, 2021.

What about the money?

There are big bucks on offer for both the supervisory and non-supervisory roles.

Enumerators are paid $17.83 per hour, plus eligible expenses.

In some Northern and remote Canadian communities, eligible workers will get paid as much as $29.25 per hour.

Crew leaders can expect to earn $21.77 per hour, in addition to eligible expenses.

In similar communities, they could earn up to $31.25 hourly.

How will COVID-19 impact the job?

“In the current context of COVID-19, Statistics Canada is committed to ensuring at alltimes the safety of its employees, including those working for the 2021 Census,” explains the agency on the job posting.

It notes that if an employee is sent to a home or dwelling, they will be given personal safety equipment (provided by Statistics Canada).

They’ll also be expected to maintain proper physical distancing at all appropriate times, in accordance with local public health guidelines.
