By establishing complete and accurate population data, the Council can make informed decisions about delivery of services, such as recreational facilities and emergency response needs. Additionally, school boards and businesses use the information as a valuable tool for planning purposes. Many federal and provincial grants are awarded on a per-capita basis, and having an up-to-date population figure maximizes our grant funding.
