Canada has a 92 year privacy rule for release of its census. The census is in the possession of Statistics Canada. After the 92 years, the records are transferred to the Library and Archives of Canada which will release the census for public use. The June 1st 1921 census will be transferred June 1st 2013, but it will take some to record, catalogue, and scan and put the images on line...therefore public access will not occur until sometime later.
Some interesting findings in the census: the overall population of Canada was 8,788,483 individuals and there were 5 schedules with 565 questions. To read more go to:http://tinyurl.com/73wccbt
