Census release plans

There's been a lot of talk leading up to the release of the US 1940 census in April, supposed to be online but without a name index on the 2nd of April. There's competition between at least two-non-government groups to name index it and make it freely available.

Canada's 1921 census is supposed to be released  to LAC in January next year, 2013. What are LAC's plans to make it available in a timely manner? When will it be online, in accordance with LAC's expressed intent to make popular datasets available to everyone via the web?

LAC monitors this blog. Please may we have information on plans.
