Statistics Canada announced Feb. 16 it is staffing 35,000 jobs across Canada to work on the 2011 Census collection. The next census will take place in May 2011.

Staff are required for a variety of supervisory and non-supervisory jobs between March and mid-August 2011. These non-office jobs require work in neighbourhoods and communities in all urban, rural and remote areas of the country. Screening of applications will start in mid-February.

The rates of pay range from $14.72 to $18.04 an hour, plus authorized expenses.

About 5,000 crew leaders and assistants and around 30,000 census enumerators will be hired.  Crew leaders train, lead and supervise a team of enumerators.  Enumerators distribute census questionnaires, conduct personal interviews and do follow-up interviews by phone.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old, eligible to work in Canada, and able to commit at least 20 hours a week, including days, evenings, weekends and holidays as required.  They will need a driver’s licence and access to a vehicle in some areas.  Candidates should be computer literate and have a home computer with access to the Internet.
