The Town of Blackfalds is conducting a municipal census. The census is being conducted both online and also with door-to-door enumerators.

Each residence has received a census letter with instructions and a PIN, a personal identification number, so that they can log in to the online census at www.blackfalds.com and quickly and easily complete the census in just a few minutes at their own convenience. Residents who do not complete the census online will be visited by an enumerator, who will be wearing a Town of Blackfalds issued photo identification badge.

The census data collected will be used to acquire an official count of population and residences and provides current demographic information for community planning and budgetary decisions for services and facilities.

If your residence has yet to provide your information to one of the door-to-door enumerators or if your household has not completed the online census yet, please contact the Town office at 403-885-4677 before June 30th, so that staff can assist you with this over the phone.

The 2015 census is being collected under the authority of Alberta’s Municipal Government Act and the collection of personal information is authorized by Section 33(c) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP). Household data collected is deemed confidential and never released at an individual residence level.
