The 1921 Census of Canada

A blog post from Library and Archives Canada reveals the following key information about the 1921 census:

  • Census returns after 1916 are in the custody of Statistics Canada, not Library and Archives Canada. 
  • The 1921 Census was taken on June 1st, which means that it will be in the custody of Library and Archives Canada on June 1, 2013. Our intention is to make it available to researchers online, in the same format as previous censuses, as soon as possible after that date.
Will LAC please inform us:
 - in what form the census exists, microfilm, original pages, something else?
 - what measures are being taken to ensure "as soon as possible" is sooner rather than later?

Dont think they much care. They are spending time on more important things. http://fr.canoe.ca/infos/quebeccanada/archives/2012/03/20120319-213613.html
