Subject: Census 2016: It Benefits Us All
Today, May 10th is National Census Day. It is very important for every Manitoban to participate in the 2016 Census. In addition to producing a high resolution picture of our various communities, the Census population counts are used as mechanisms to allocate federal funding to municipalities and provinces. As Minister Friesen said “It is up to all of us to fill out the forms because if we don’t, it’s our communities that will lose out.”
For every person ultimately missed, Manitoba loses $46,000 in federal transfer payments over the next five years. These funds directly support the fabric of our Province.
