Canadian research links

Links to further your canadian genealogy research

Census records  are a big part of any genealogical research to find missing individuals or help connect a family member to the rest of the family tree.

In Canada, the last census available was in 1901 before a law had to be passed so further censuses would be publicly available for genealogists.  In 2005, Bill S-18 was effectively passed so now the next censuses should be turned over to the National Archives, 92 years after their original date.

Here are links so you can document or research your canadian genealogy:
