Where is the 1921 Canadian Census???

On June 1st 2013 the Library and Archives of Canada (LAC) was to release the 1921 Canadian Census.  Like many of you I have been waiting 10 years to see this information.  Unlike the 1940 United States Census there was no big count down, no television coverage and no information.  I found a note that shows that Statistics Canada release the information in January 2013 to the LAC.  The LAC has been contacted by  E-mail and Facebook and have not responded to any of the questions.  I would just like an update!

Where is the Census?  Why wont they update anyone?  What is with the silence???

I am not a Canadian citizen, my brother and I are the only U.S. citizen in my Maternal line.    So I do not have access to local information or government sources.

The last information found is from a blog dated Mar 27, 2012 .  This states they will get the census to the public  " as soon as possible after that date"   Does this mean days, months, years until they have to update us?

Now almost 4 days past the release date I did the only thing I could think of and sent a e-mail to the Prime Minister of Canada .  Now, I do not hold great hope that I will get any useful information but maybe if enough of us do it there will be a response to what is going on.


Prime Minister of Canada -

Let hope that the LAC and the Canadian Government realize how badly this makes them look in the eyes of the very large genealogy community.  

Okay vent over...On a Happy note...  I have finished the updated on the Descendants of Elisha Steeves and Delilah Smith!  Still working on Price/Hovey updating (and will be forever!) Now working on some Autosomal DNA connections which I am finding very interesting.  

Take care


  1. I have Steeves and Smith ancestors as well!
