The 2016 Census means services and increased grant dollars for the taxpayers of Melfort, so it's important to be counted.  The census collects demographic information on every man, woman and child living in Canada. Information from the Census of Population is used by all levels of government, businesses, and various social service organizations and ethno-cultural organizations. The data are used in the administration of government programs and in planning pensions, healthcare, employment programs, new schools, public transit, hospitals, daycare centres, etc.

All residents of Canada are legally required to complete either the short- or long-form census questionnaire, according to the Statistics Act.

Statistics Canada is bound by law to protect the confidentiality of the information respondents provide in the census. Only Statistics Canada employees who have taken the oath of secrecy have access to census questionnaires.
