* GENERAL INTEREST
Library and Archives Canada have the 1921 Canadian census on their website. Prior to yesterday only Canadians could browse the 1921 census for free due to a contractual arrangement with Ancestry.ca. Those outside of Canada had to have a subscription to Ancestry to access the census. Now that the 5 year agreement with Ancestry.ca is completed, where Ancestry assumed the cost of indexing the census, anyone may access the census for free. The census has information on 8.79 million people.
To read more about the census and search see: http://tinyurl.com/y79t5kgp
Earlier Canadian censuses are available at: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/ENG/CENSUS/Pages/census.aspx
