1916 Census of the Western Provinces now available at LAC

The 1916 Census of the Western Provinces (Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta) is now available at Library and Archives Canada. The self-serve microfilm reels (reels T-21925 to T-21956) are in the Microfilm Consultation room. Copies are also available for interlibrary loan.

Copies of the microfilm reels shelf-list are in the Microfilm Consultation Room and at the reference desk in the Canadian Genealogy Centre.

This census is only available on microfilm. It has not been digitized, so is not yet available online on the LAC website. Digitization and indexing are being undertaken as part of an agreement with TGN (Ancestry).

The Canadian Genealogy Centre webpages providing census information will be updated shortly.

The above information is confirmed with Sylvie Tremblay, Chief of the Canadian Genealogy Centre, who adds that the images are of reasonable quality.
