1926 Census – When? No One Knows

Update: Hold on to Your Hats, The Census is Coming

The 1926 census has had many of us waiting for any word on when we will have access from Library and Archives Canada.

A look at the Library and Archives Canada website and a small paragraph indicates that it is going to be quite some time before we will be browsing through the 1926 census records.

They plan to have:

“the data from the census available on our website; in the coming months we will be in a better position to estimate a release date.”

What a disappointment. They do not even have an estimated release date? They can’t even guess?

LAC was able to plan a finish date for the WWI digitization project, why not this? It seems poor planning on their part that they couldn’t offer the public more information.

We waited until the allotted date and we get nothing…I for one am quite disappointed in LAC.

The waiting continues.

    Could they at least draft a plan for volunteer indexers for the ’26??
    Volunteers from around the world finished the 1940 USA census in just months!!

      Even if the release it, we could come up with some sort of indexing. Just let us have it!!
