Read an interesting article on the release of the 1921 Canada Census. Apparently it is already digitized and may be just sitting on the shelf somewhere . . . .
Here is the article from Elizabeth Lapointe in her blog http://genealogycanada.blogspot.ca/ :
“MONDAY, JUNE 17, 2013
A reliable source from the LAC has just phoned me to ask that I inform my readers, genealogists, and others interested in their Canadian families, that the 1921 Canadian Census has already been digitized, and has been ready for release since last Wednesday, 12 June, but it is being held back by the federal government before it is released.
So if you want the census released NOW, it has been suggested that you write the Heritage Minister, The Honourable James Moore, and ask that the 1921 Canadian Census be released now.
Minister Moore’s mailing address is: The Hon. James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage & Official Languages, House of Commons, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0A6.
His telephone number is 613-992-9650, and his fax number is 613-992-9868.
He can also be reached online at www.pch.gc.ca/pc-ch/minstr/moore/cntct/index-eng.cfm, or by direct email email@example.com
Remember, there is no postage required for sending snail-mail to Members of Parliament in Canada from within Canada.”
There is a follow-up article dated 19 June saying that Parliament has left for holidays, including the Minister!
