Census Frequently Asked Questions

A municipal census may be conducted anywhere between April 1 and June 30. The last municipal census occurred in the spring of 2023.

The census is an official door-to-door count of the number of people living in Spruce Grove, but it's more than just a headcount! The census plays a vital role in shaping our City and determining how resources are allocated. Census data is used to make informed decisions about the delivery of future services, including community growth plans, recreational facilities, emergency response and much more.

You have two options to provide your census information.

  1. Complete your census online using the Secure Access Code that will be delivered to your household.
  2. Provide your information when City enumerators are going door to door. Enumerators will only visit residences where the census has not already been completed online.

All responses must be received by the scheduled census completion date.

Responding online gives you the flexibility to provide your census information at your convenience. Once you complete your census online, your household will immediately be counted and you will not receive a follow up visit from a City enumerator.

You can provide your information directly to a City enumerator when they start going door-to-door.
