What you need to know: 

  • The 1921 Canada Census images will be free to browse on
  • A nominal index is being created by and should be released within the next two-three months. You will need a subscription to or have a worldwide subscription at any of the other Ancestry databases to access the index (when available.)
  • You can browse the images by geographic location. Having an idea of where your ancestor may have lived in 1921 will help pinpoint where to start looking in the images.
  • Currently, you cannot save a 1921 Canada census image to your computer from the Ancestry website. Instead, you can add a weblink to your ancestor's profile page if your family tree is posted on Ancestry.
