I wonder if you can help
I am trying to trace my family in Canada. They went out to Toronto in around about 1880/5. Is there any way of getting information about them, either through Immigration records, or through the Canadian Census for that time.

Automated Genealogy has a free census transcription site that has the 1901 and 1911 censuses available at http://automatedgenealogy.com/index.html
Other useful locations are via the Canada collections site as http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/archivianet/index-e.html

Thank you so much for the information Gerald. Do you know if the 1891 census is available also?

Here's a more up to date page from the same website, which includes the 1891 census:

A big thank you to AdeLeE for your assistance. I found my relative first time.

Are there any census later than 1911 available in Canada?

Irene, the 1916 census is now available but it was only for the three prairie provinces: Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.

Thanks for your reply Beejay.
I am trying to find a distant family member who was sent to Canada, I think Toronto. He was 13 years old and he sailed on the SS Corinthian in March 1913. He was last heard of in 1942, living in Moutray St. Toronto.
I know it is a long shot, but worth a try!

Why don't you start a fresh thread, give us the details & we'll have a look?
