1996 Census


Information available on the following pages refers to the post-division (April 1, 1999) geography of the Northwest Territories (i.e. excludes Nunavut). Statistics Canada undertakes a national census every five years. For 1996, Census Day was Tuesday, May 14th.

The Census is an enumeration of people living in all Provinces and Territories. In addition, the Census provides statistical information on topics such as housing, language, ethnicity, education, labour force, and income.

Enumeration

In the Northwest Territories (also the Yukon and the northern portions of some provinces), some places were enumerated during March 1996. Counts were completed at an earlier date in these places to help improve census coverage.
