MUNICIPAL CENSUS: The Town of Bonnyville will be conducting a 2024 Municipal Census. The 2023 Interim Operating Budget includes $45,000 to complete the census. The purpose of conducting a Municipal Census is to ensure that the Town has accurate population counts that can be used to better plan for community services. This census will also include Bonnyville’s Shadow Population, which is the temporary residents of a municipality who are employed by an industrial or commercial establishment in the municipality and who work at least 120 hours for that employer in the three-month period immediately preceding Census Day. A letter will be sent to the Minister of Municipal Affairs to notify them that the Town wishes to conduct a 2024 Municipal Census.
