ISI is pleased to note the decision of the new Canadian government to reinstate the mandatory long form for the 2016 Canadian Census, thereby restoring data quality for small population data. This decision follows on from the controversial decision in 2010 to make the form voluntary.

See the Statement of Statistics Canada on the 2016 Census of Population and the mandatory long form for details.
