JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Canada's 1921 Census to Be Released June 2013 #general

Jan Meisels Allen

Canada has a 92 year privacy rule for release of its census. The census is
in the possession of Statistics Canada. After the 92 years, the records are
transferred to the Library and Archives of Canada which will release the
census for public use. The June 1st 1921 census will be transferred June 1st
2013, but it will take some to record, catalogue, and scan and put the
images on line...therefore public access will not occur until sometime

Some interesting findings in the census: the overall population of Canada
was 8,788,483 individuals and there were 5 schedules with 565 questions. To
