The 2016 Census Adult Education Kit has been developed for use in adult literacy and English- or French-as-a-second-language (ESL or FSL) classes across the country. All activities are classroom-ready.
The kit contains five activities that provide opportunities for listening, speaking, reading and writing. The activities help students to become familiar with the Census of Population, and to gain an understanding of how the census works and how information obtained through the census is used.
Students will learn where to find information when they are completing the census questionnaire, and will gain experience with important vocabulary.
The best time to incorporate the Adult Education Kit into your curriculum is in May 2016, when the Census of Population and the Census of Agriculture are being conducted across the country. However, activities can be added to classroom studies throughout the year. Retrieved from http://census.gc.ca/ccr16e/ccr16e_001-eng.html
