1911 Canadian Census should be online by early August

Bill S-18 has now received Royal Assent. Under this amended legislation, personal census records for censuses taken between 1911 and 2001 will be made available through Library and Archives Canada 92 years after each census took place.

Library and Archives Canada has received the official transfer of the 1911 census records from Statistics Canada. The 1911 Canadian Census should be online and searchable by genealogists in by early August.
