  • Statistics Canada Census Genealogy Corner
    For the first time, everyone filling in the 2006 Canadian Census was asked a very important question: do you agree to have your census information made available to the public in 92 years, in other words in the year 2098. This information serves future generations by providing them with historical and genealogical data that will allow them to better understand their national, regional and family history. Public support and participation in the 2006 Census is what makes this passing of information from generation to generation possible. Statistics Canada invites you to change or verify your response to this question so that your descendants have the chance to "meet" you in the future. Also included is an interesting paper "Where Were Your Ancestors in 1871?"
