Census takers begin door to door


The Medicine Hat municipal census is continuing. Beginning this week, census takers will be fanning out to count each resident in every home, apartment or other lodging place within the city limits. For each resident counted, the city receives $252 in grant money that funds public transportation, road and lane construction, and fire services. Census data is also used to help plan amenities in city neighborhoods. Residents can still complete census questions online using your their unique PIN at www.medicinehat.ca/census. The census wraps up on June 30th.
