1921 Census of Canada is now available on the Library and Archives Canada website!

+21 votes

The Library and Archives Canada made the controversial and unpopular decision to have Ancestry digitize the 1921 census, in return providing them with 4 years of exclusive distribution. While free to Canadians, it did require the creation of an Ancestry.ca account. (The unpopularity of that decision may be why the news release on the LAC website wasn't pushed to the press - I can't even find a recent story doing a search of news sources using Google.)

Well, the period of exclusivity is now over!

The 1921 Census is now up on the LAC website.

Fellow Canadians, get sourcing!


As an addendum, it seems that the Canadian website, Automated Genealogy, already has a transcription project underway.

I could not get access to the press release that was not released.

I wonder if its been removed?
Thanks for the great news!
Thank you very much.  :D

W00t! I do have an Ancestry account, but I've never had as much success searching there as I have on the LAC site. I'm very excited to be able to use LAC's search function on the 1921 census!
