Time to fill out your census form. There’s a bunch of playlists that can help.

I got my census form in the mail the other day, so that’s on my list of tasks for the weekend. You crack open the envelope, get your security code, and fill in the online questionnaire. It can be a little tedious, but at least there are some playlists to help us along.

Statistics Canada has curated a selection of playlists that it says will help us “experience the different facets of Canadian culture through the sounds of our celebrated musical talent. If these songs aren’t already among your favourite tracks, we hope that you have the opportunity to discover something new as you fill out your questionnaire online in May.”

Here’s a screenshot of some of the playlists on offer. The entire list can be found here. And yes, you are legally required to complete the census.
