By answering a few questions, residents can help make the city better.
 
The City of Fort Saskatchewan is conducting their 2018 census, which helps them plan for the future.
 
“Our population is based on our per capita grants, which includes policing and our MSI grant funding. This helps us with our future planning for our infrastructure, transportation, parks, schools and protective services, which includes the policing and fire program,” said census coordinator Sheryl Exley.
 
The city is collecting data such as age, gender, type of dwelling, employment stats, etc. Residents must fill out the census online.
 
Exley encouraged people to complete the census as soon as possible to eliminate an enumerator from coming to their door.
 
Residents have until June 1 to complete the census, but enumerators will start going door-to-door on Monday (Apr.23).
 
Anyone requiring assistance can contact Exley at City Hall.
 
Last year they had 100 per cent completion.
