Enumerators are being sought to fill positions in and around Alert Bay, Sointula, Port McNeill, Zeballos, Woss, Sayward, Port Alice, Port Hardy and the surrounding First Nations communities in preparation for the 2011 Census.

Enumerators conduct interviews in person and by telephone, and the job pays $14.72 per hour.  Work starts in May and goes until July.  Jobs are available in both rural and urban areas.  Paid training is provided.

“Census work is challenging and never boring.  You meet some great people and the work changes from day to day – it truly is a team effort.  If you are over the age of 18 and computer literate, enjoy working with people and are willing to work flexible hours, we would encourage you to take part in this exciting 2011 Census process,” said Brooke Sommers who is working on the North Island as a 2011 Census crew leader.

In an email Sommers said, “If you are interested in joining our team, or if you would like more information, go online at www.census2011.gc.ca and click on census jobs.  Applications will be accepted on-line.”
