1921 Canadian census available in 2013

John Reid is blogging that Library and Archives Canada will be making the 1921 census available next year, from June 1st. How it does so, however, is as yet to be revealed. John's post is at http://anglo-celtic-connections.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/1921-census-of-canada.html which links to the archive's own blog post at http://thediscoverblog.com/2012/03/27/1921-census-countdown/. This states that the census will be released "in the same format as previous censuses" - whether that means unindexed on its own site, or indexed via Ancestry or FamilySearch etc, is still to be announced.

Having discovered over the last week or so that three of my gran's hitherto unknown of first cousins all emigrated to Ontario in the early 1900s, I'll definitely be keeping an eye out on this!
