INDU Minutes & Motion Aug. 27 – Census Study


The Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology met in a televised videoconference session at 9:00 a.m. this day, in Room 237-C, Centre Block, the Chair, Michael D.Chong, presiding.


That the Government of Canada re-instate the mandatory long-form census; and that the government introduce legislative amendments to the Statistics Act to remove completely the provision of imprisonment from Section 31 of the Act and this would therefore apply to the Census of Population, the Long-Form Census and the Census of Agriculture, and that the Committee submit a report to the House.

I sent a note to the Committee requesting the transcripts for the full day of proceedings.
