The 1921 Canada Census will be released August 8th

I have just received notice at 3:07 this afternoon (Aug 7th) from the LAC that the 1921 Canada Census will be released to Ancestry.ca tomorrow afternoon at around 2 pm Eastern Time. At first, it will be available, with the geographic index ONLY, free of charge, on Ancestry.

Ancestry should be releasing a FULL NOMINAL INDEX this fall. This index will be available to Ancestry.ca subscribers for 3 years. At the end of three years, the  LAC will get a copy and will make it available for free off of our census platform that was entirely redesigned recently.

So folks, that is the story.

It will appear tomorrow afternoon at http://www.ancestry.ca/census

I would like to thank everyone for all the letters that were written to the Heritage Department, and the petition that was signed with over 2,000 signatures, and were sent to the office of Minister Moore. Thank you all.  

I can hardly wait ...

There has been no announcement of an imminent release of the 1921 Canada census on the Library and Archives Canada Facebook page. So, the million dollar question now is ... will it really appear tomorrow? https://www.facebook.com/LibraryArchives
