The 1931 census of Canada debuts June 1st.

It’s likely I have relatives scattered across Canada on the pages of the 1931 Canadian census. Many will be in Quebec and Ontario. Some I am particularly interest in, were back and forth between Massachusetts, New York, and Quebec. Among the family names are Connolly, Reinhardt, Copping, Jones, Dow, Daoust, and others. I’m almost as excited as I was for the April 1, 2022, release of the 1950 U.S. census on which I was enumerated with my parents.

From Library and Archives Canada, “By law, the personal information in this census can only be made public 92 years after the census was completed. As a result, access will be made available on June 1, 2023.”

I have paid attention to the form used in enumerating the residents of Canada and what each column will contain. The form below is taken from
