Forms Info

Forms are tailored to a particular industry or group of industries. There are approximately 500 versions of the basic census form.

  • Single establishment businesses will get one form.
  • Multi-establishment businesses will get forms for each separate business location. There will also be some questions about the firm/company as a whole.

To preview specific forms, select your industry sector from the dropdown menu at the Business Help Site. These forms are for your information only. The specific form you will need to file will be mailed to you between October and December 2012.
