- The 1921 Canadian Census was released by Statistics Canada (either January or June 1st this year, government agency accounts differ) to Library and Archives Canada (LAC) for scanning and releasing to the public.
- It was due for release the first week of June but with no explanation from LAC the opening was delayed.
- LAC has not been forthcoming with any details or fanfare or explanation as to when we might see this census
- A source at LAC revealed information that the Federal Government put the census release on indefinite hold because the only people interested were "3 little old ladies in Kingston [Ontario]"
