Useful to Both Municipal & Provincial Governments
The census is an official count of the number of people living in our community. As the Town of Taber continues to grow, municipal census data is useful to both municipal and provincial governments. The count reflects the growth of the town and assists different departments in planning for the needs of our citizens.
Decisions regarding future municipal services are based to a large extent on statistics on population growth collected in the municipal census. Much of the grant funding received from the province is awarded on a per capita basis and a census count ensures that maximum grants are being received.
