Statistics Canada launches 11 playlists to celebrate the 2021 Census

Wooo, it's Census szn

Statistics Canada has released the 2021 Census and 11 playlists to listen to while you fill it out.

You can check out the playlists on the Stats Canada website, Spotify or YouTube. There are a lot of cool music genres represented in each playlist and, of course, lots of great Canadian talent.

Overall, I’m always down to hype up Canadian artists, but I’m hoping I can crush my census in less time than it will take to listen to all of this music. On another note, as I mentioned in the Sonos Radio article about the Junos, these playlists might be cool to save to soundtrack your Canada Day this summer.

The playlists are as follows:

  • Spark & soul – Modern pop, electronic and soul infusions from Canada’s chart-toppers (Spotify/YouTube Music)
  • Studio Sessions – Explore Canada’s latest up-and-coming alternative and folk talent. (Spotify/YouTube Music)
