Census Data at Dissemination Block Level

I have a researcher really wanting to get ahold of Census data (2011 & 2016) for NS at the Dissemination Block level. Do we have access to this level of geography (if so – any guidance for grabbing it would be amazing) or should I refer to the local RDC?

Subject matter had the following to relay:

“Data for dissemination blocks is not available as part as standard products, besides for population and dwelling counts through our GeoSuite tool.

Other data is available through custom tabulations (additional  suppression is applied). The RDC file only goes down to the Dissemination Area (DA) level.”
