Notice to Clients
As many of you are aware, Bill S-18 has now received Royal Assent. Under this amended legislation, personal census
records for censuses taken between 1911 and 2001 will be made available through Library and Archives Canada 92 years
after each census took place.

Library and Archives Canada has received the official transfer of the 1911 census records from Statistics Canada. To
facilitate access to these records, a number of standard policies and procedures need to be followed before the product
is launched. We are working very hard to release this information to researchers and the general public as quickly as
possible. We hope to do this by early August.

> As to the WHEN -- it had been our belief that Library and Archives

> schedules of Census. Perhaps this was wishful thinking rather than
> fact.
