Abbysmum said "Assuming it is legitimately Stats Can, there are surveys that you are legally required to answer. Most notable (and the one most lilely to be encountered) is the Labour Force Survey, which they use to determine the unemployment rate.
I had a friend that used to do those as an employee of Stats Can, and she had to hound people to get them to answer. A list of required surveys is here: https://www.statcan.gc.ca/en/about/accountability/surveys
Of course, these days it's incredibly hard to know what is legit and what's not sometimes. If it's about aliens, it's obviously not lol. "
Suppose to send a letter advise of phone call coming with options to do online and they provide pass key.
Problem on phone call is that it doesn’t say where it is coming from. Some questions asked were ones answered on the big survey.
They call you 3 months in a row.
I complained about no letter and option online as then you know for sure who you are giving information to.
There are very few that are mandatory. Check on website above.
As to Aliens survey. There is that new item in space they don’t know what it is. Scientists are saying no way not natural but they don’t know.
I am not Alien fanatic just think in this large too large universe there is a possibility of other life forms.
