Seeking census records for your Canadian ancestors? You can count on two electronic resources to simplify your research.
The National Archives of Canada has posted the 1901 census online at <www.archives.ca/02/020122_e.html>. Here you can access scanned images of the entire enumeration for free. This site is a prototype of the permanent database, which the archives expected to launch last fall. The prototype is best viewed with Windows and Internet Explorer; the archives is working to allow use with other systems and browsers.
