2011 Canadian Census

Shirley L. Sturdevant, Vice-President of the Ontario Genealogical Society, has just issued this statement concerning the 2011 Canadian Census -

"If you have not already completed your electronic census, please consider doing the following:

1. Print each page before you go to the next set of questions and store it with your family documents

2. Check 'yes' to the last question which will give permission to release your information in 92 years for the next set of family historians who might be looking for you. (If you say 'no', or leave it blank, your information will not be released.)

If you feel comfortable doing so, please forward this message to family and friends.


Shirley can be reached at

Thank you, Lynn!

It's actions like yours which the OGS hopes all Canadians will adopt when filling out these census forms.
