Authorities said census enumerators would begin calling households that had not yet submitted a completed questionnaire later this month.

It says “every attempt will be made” to contact people by phone before the enumerator initiates a direct visit, encouraging people to do so and provide assistance if necessary. I will.

According to Statistics Canada, no one enters a home or a place like a long-term care facility because of health risks.
