1911 Census now with Nominal Index at LAC

Once again Library and Archives Canada has released a nominally indexed census on their website, this for 1911.
There is a good discussion of the census and its contents at http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1911/Pages/about-census.aspx
Once again you have to go to the bottom of the help file to read that LAC "gratefully acknowledges the contribution of Ancestry.ca, without which this project would not have been possible."  That means that Ancestry funded most of the work.

I notice that corrections to the Ancestry index of the 1911 census have not transferred over to the LAC site, which is too bad. Many poorly-indexed records are difficult to locate without the advanced search capabilities of Ancestry. The corrections made by users go some way to mitigate that fact, but do not show up at LAC.
However, even an unedited nominal index is better than none!
