Coaldale Census 2019 from April 1 to June 30

The most recent census conducted in the Town of Coaldale was the Federal Census of 2016 which put Coaldale’s population at 8,215.

Over the past 3 years the Town’s population has continued to grow. With the completion of annexation in 2018 there was another jump in the population.

A number of government programs including grants depend on population numbers. When you count yourself in, our Town receives approximately $230 per person in Federal and Provincial grant dollars. Grants support roads, policing, social programs and other town services.

In an effort to ensure Coaldale has an accurate count of its residents, the Town will be conducting a municipal census April 1 to June 30, 2019 when enumerators will be going door to door in our community to take an accurate count of our population.

Census Q & A:

How much time will the survey take?

The enumerators will take about 5 minutes of your time. If you are not home or would like to answer online they will leave a letter with a PIN you can use to fill the survey in on our website.

We are asking residents to give them just a few minutes of time in order to ensure we don’t miss anyone in our counting.
