Pros and Cons of Working at Stats Canada
Enumerator (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 24 April 2017
I would rate my experience at Statistics Canada as being very fulfilling. Every afternoon, I would go out for approximately 4-5 hours and get those whose census had not yet been filled out to complete either the short or long form census. I met and worked with a great variety of interesting and friendly people along the way. Moreover, it was not only a source of exercise, but it also made me feel like I was contributing to the public good, as the data form the census is used in planning a wide variety of public policies.
Very good hours, met many different people, contributing to public good
Lots of walking around, sometimes into unfamiliar locations
