The 2021 Census is the country’s primary source of sociodemographic data. Like all communities across Canada our community is constantly evolving, with residents aging, starting families and new members moving in. There is no better way to track and document these demographic characteristics than through the 2021 census. The results help Federal and Local Governments make more informed decions to benefit our area.

Because of that the Town of Bruce Mines fully supports the 2021 CENSUS and all residents are asked and encouraged to complete their census online at
