Statistics Canada is recruiting Indigenous people to participate in individual interviews to test content related to the Census. The interviews will be led by a Statistics Canada interviewer and any information that you provide is strictly confidential.  The interview will last approximately 1 hour and you will be compensated $75 following the interview.

All the interview questions deal with matters of opinion, so there are no right or wrong answers.  Your participation is very valuable and we’d like your input and feedback in this process.  We are interested in your understanding of specific concepts and wording, and to see how easy the questions are to answer. Topics covered will include a person’s ancestry, Indigenous identity, and population group.
