Statistics Canada is Hiring 35,000 Temporary Workers for the 2016 Census

It’s not every day, if at all, that your job enables you to make a lasting contribution to Canada and its people.

But for five months starting March 2016, you can do exactly that. Toronto’s most precious gift to Mother Earth, Norm Kelly, has the details:

This may just be the remote job you’re looking for – geographically. Early numeration jobs are available throughout the far North, from Kangiqsualujjuaq to Resolute, which is what you’ll need to be while working in the Arctic. Less isolated work is also available at the Data Operations Centre in Ottawa/Gatineau.

Both part- and full-time work is available depending on the position, with respectable wages and flexible hours. Aside from basic literacy, the only necessary qualifications are that applicants are over 18 years old and eligible to work in Canada.

Though perhaps not enticing enough to ditch your day job, the positions are ideal for students, recently retired persons, stay-at-home parents, and those wanting to supplement their income. After all, wages that top out at nearly $20/hr for part-time work aren’t always easy to find.

And let’s not forget who this opportunity is most perfect for – those who’ve always wanted to live in God’s Lake, NWT.
