Enumerators are in particular demand. Statistics Canada plans to hire 2,627 in the province to work in French, plus an additional 2,446 who are bilingual.

Wages vary by position and place of work, according to the Statistics Canada website.

Enumerators work part-time and are paid $17.83 per hour. Those working in "select Northern and remote communities," however, are paid $29.25 per hour.

Crew leaders, meanwhile, work full-time and earn $21.77 per hour or $31.25 per hour in Northern and remote communities.

The duties of an enumerator include collecting census questionnaires from households and "[following] up with respondents by calling or visiting."

Crew leaders are charged with leading "a team of up to 18 enumerators" and monitoring their progress.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old and able to legally work in Canada.

To apply, review the job requirements online and fill out an application.
