Ancestry.com’s Canadian website Ancestry.ca is now offering free access to record images for the 1921 census of Canada.
Ancestry.com is still working on a searchable index, so you’ll need to browse the records by place. Use the Browse This Collection box on the right to choose the province, district and subdistrict where your relatives lived in 1921, then sign up for a free basic account (if you don’t already have one) to view the census images.
This census was recently the subject of a petition seeking its release to researchers. The privacy period expired June 1, and the records reportedly had been transferred to the Library and Archives Canada and digitized. But until now, no plans had been announced for their release to the public.
