1926 Census of the Prairie Provinces

This is the day when the 1926 census is officially transferred to Library and Archives Canada. Conducted on 1 June, 1926, 92 years ago today.

From 1901 to 1926 the three provinces were growing rapidly, the increase in population was more than 393 per cent since 1901. Statistics from the census are in this publication (pdf).

The information on the LAC website is that "Due to the extent of the work involved in preparing the data, we do not yet have a date for when it will be made available to the public."

Look for an update soon (I hope).

Looking forward to viewing the census records, please keep me up dated.

I'd expect it be available by September. If I recall the 1921 census was made available mid-August 2013.
