So where do we find Marriages from 1928 to 1932 or Deaths from 1938 to 1942?

Ancestry (Lesley Anderson) informs me that "they were not included in the partnership agreement with Ancestry.ca but as far as I can see from their release the previous years are available on microfilm. We are hopeful that they will be online as soon as possible."
