HAT Forum, Sat. Aug 7, 11am - 1pm OISE Room 11-200

Sat. August 7, 11am - 1pm.  OISE Room 11-200
Topic: The issue of the "mandatory long census form" in Canada's next census.
Facilitator:  Jodi Perrin

What are some of the uses of such a form and why do experts in the field (like the head of Stats.Can.) feel so strongly about its cancellation ?
Are there other ways to gather accurate information reflecting our diversity?
How intrusive is it and what are the privacy issues it raises?
Why has this become an issue now although we have had this mandatory long form for certainly the last several census periods and it appeared not to engender large protest from privacy advocates?
