Archived Geography


It seems the entire geography section of the archived 2001 census website has been removed; any ideas why? Telling users that: "the latest information relating to the census standard geographic areas can be found in the current geography section of the census website" does little good when they want 2001 CT maps, for example. I know we have access to the maps through the DLI, but we're not always available when users want things.


Please note that the web pages relating to the 2001 and 2006 Census have recently been archived. The decision was made to transfer the 2001 maps to the most recent Internet pages, where feasible. These pages currently contain 2011, 2006 and 2001 maps: <>

Most 2001 reference maps are available on this web page, with a few exceptions. Where it was not feasible to transfer the maps to the new web pages, users who wish to acquire 2001 maps which already exist, but are no longer available via the Statistics Canada website, should contact Statistics Canada’s Infostats help line and the Regional Office will provide the User with a copy of the map, free of charge.
