As retirees many of us are looking for opportunities to become involved in community activities that extend beyond the teaching workplace. Some of us do it out of a feeling of giving back for what we have received in our working careers, some for wanting to show our commitment to the values of our Canadian culture and civic responsibilities, and some of us may out of need be looking for some part-time employment to pay unexpected bills.

The next census will take place in May 2021. Statistics Canada will be hiring approximately 32,000 people across the country to assist in census data collection activities. Statistics Canada wants BCRTA members who are interested to be aware of these job opportunities.

Census information is vital for all communities for planning schools, daycare, housing, hospitals, emergency services, roads, public transportation, and employment skills training. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Statistics Canada has adapted to ensure that the 2021 Census is conducted throughout the country in the best possible way, using a safe and secure approach.

Should you have any questions, please contact Statistics Canada at

Thank you in advance for supporting the 2021 Census.
