Stats Canada legitimately calling monthly for several months re labour force survey related to Covid
A man's voice claiming to be Stats Can, with a case #. He wanted energy usage for the building, but I am a tenant, and never received a package in the mail last month. I did call back and left a message saying I never received any mail from them, the info they want should be solicited from the superintendent.
Statistics Canada calling for wrong person. they may be legit, but at least call for the right person!
They're legitimate. Since Statistics Canada's offices have shut down due to COVID-19 they have employees working from home on legitimate surveys (most of which are required by law under the Statistics Act). This is the toll-free # to call back. Often a letter will be mailed to you ahead of time explaining the purpose of the call.
I ignore all (833, 844, 8xx...) type calls. This one left a message saying it was Statistics Canada with a number and reference number to call back to. First time I ever heard of Statistics Canada phoning people unsolicited.
