Attention: Mayors, Councillors & CAOs
Is your municipality considering conducting a census? If so, please remember that there are some deadlines fast approaching.
For the purpose of compiling the 2012 Alberta Municipal Affairs Population List, the higher number resulting from the 2011 federal census or 2011 municipal count will be used as a municipality’s population unless the municipality conducts an official census between April 1 to June 30 of this year and reports the results of the official census to the Minister by September 1, 2012 and the results are accepted by the Minister.
These guidelines reflect Alberta Regulation 63/2001, the Determination of Population Regulation.
If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Cindy Wienmeyer, Municipal Services Branch, Municipal Affairs, toll-free at 310-0000, then 780-427-2225.
