CEF Service Files Digitization by LAC: January Update

As of 15 January 2016, 240,545 (231,540 last month) of 640,000 files are available online via Library and Archives Canada's Soldiers of the First World War: 1914–1918 database.
The latest box digitized is #3962  (#3789) and the surname Halliwell (Greenaway).
At that rate digitization would be complete in 44 months, by August 1919. Looks like the digitization team didn't work on Christmas Day!
At the rate of digitization over the past year the project would be completed in February 1919.
To finish by the end of 2018 will require a digitization rate of 12,000 per month.
