The census online application now accessible to Linux operating system
In response to demand, Statistics Canada has removed the restriction for Linux. This change takes effect May 13th, 2006.
This broadened access to open-source users is available to those who have a valid browser and JVM. These minimum requirements are necessary in order to maintain the same level of data encryption with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI).
With the addition of this new operating system, the capacity of the Census Help Line operators to respond to technical calls from open source users may be limited. However, we expect this will not be a major obstacle for the vast majority of these users.
