Leduc Census 2019: Count Yourself In Online

Friday, March 29, 2019
 

The 2019 Leduc Census will be available online April 1 – May 31, 2019. Census letters will be mailed out to Leduc households this week encouraging citizens to complete their census online. Each letter will contain a unique PIN which will be required to complete the census online. Leduc’s online census can be completed from any computer or through a handheld device, like a tablet or smart phone, by logging onto census.leduc.ca

The 2019 Leduc Census will feature random prize draw for a Google Home Mini or City of Leduc fleece blanket for any households that complete their census online before April 22. Just watch for the opt-in message at the end of the census. “We are encouraging residents to count themselves in and be a part of the 2019 Leduc Census as participation is vital for this community’s future,” says Macarena Hormazabal, deputy city clerk with the City of Leduc. “Leduc relies on provincial funding to help offset the costs of many important services, including infrastructure improvements and maintenance, the public library, Family & Community Support Services and RCMP.”

Each census worker will have completed a basic criminal records check and will have photo identification.
