1911 Canadian Census Now Online

25 July, 2005

        Further to our report that the 1911 census had been released, news now comes that it has been made public on the Internet by the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) <http://www.collectionscanada.ca/archivianet/1911/index-e.html>. It has yet been made available if you visit the LAC, nor is it available by inter-institutional loan at the moment.

    The 1911 census information was collected from June 1st, 1911, and covers the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The northern territories of the Yukon and the Northwest Territories, are included.

    The population schedule described people in terms of their name, religion, ethnic origin, age, gender, education, occupation, and social condition. It also lists the head of the house and the other people's relationship to him or her.

    The website suggests that there may be "slower performance during peak usage periods (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.)".
