Canada's 1911 Census On-Line

Canada's 1911 census pages are on-line to view for free in the databases of the Canadian Genealogy Centre on Library & Archives Canada's website.

These census images are searchable by geographic location only.

The database has a good help section with maps, useful listings of locations by district and a section on 'Interpreting the Records', however, there are several other aids on-line elsewhere & several indexing projects already underway.

Please take some time to choose an indexing project and to volunteer a few hours to index at least a few pages. These surname projects aren't ideal, but they will help many, many people to find their family members in the 1911 census pages.
