Canadian Census 2016

2 May

I saw a bunch of things online today about Canadians being excited to fill out the census and as a result they crashed the Government website…apparently this makes us all nerds.

Well add one more to the nerd club because I got my census stuff in the mail today and was excited to take part. πŸ™‚

I’m not sure why I am happy to fill out the census stuff, I mean really its just a form asking boring questions about me but, well, I dunno, I guess I think the census is important and I’m glad the new government brought it back.

Sadly I didn’t get the looooong version, sigh, so my experience filling out the census was only a couple of minutes, but hey, they’ll send one out again someday and maybe I’ll get the long one then!

I got sent an oddly sized envelope that has rip off sides. Don’t mind my hand hiding my addie lol

I enjoy the tag line “Complete the census – it’s the law”…I keep hearing Sylvester Stallone’s voice from when he was in the movie Judge Dredd and he says “I am the law!” πŸ˜›

When you open the envelope this is what it says (sorry it is cut off on the sides, my bad!) Along the top, where I cropped the picture, there is a personal code that I use when I log on to the website so they know it is me.

Aaaaand here is the first page you get when you go to the website. I can’t show you pics from when I was filling out the questions cuz ya know, privacy an all that πŸ˜‰ but I highly doubt any of you would be interested in that stuff anyways.

I can’t say for the long version but the short one is all multiple choice, except for one question at the end where you can write in any questions, or concerns, or comments. I wrote in that I wished I had gotten the long version lol I don’t think that is really the kind of comment they were looking for but hey, they gave me a platform to comment on so I’m gonna use it! πŸ˜‰

    I was really excited to fill it out too! It was my first time filling out a long form. Can you believe that was on my bucket list? πŸ˜›

      You got the long form? I’m so jealous! I had never thought to put it on my bucket list but if I had thought of it I’d definitely have put it on there lol Nerds Unite! πŸ™‚
