Detailed Profiles for Historic Censuses

I have a print-out (or at least a copy of a print out)--not an official publication--from the 1961 Census regarding population counts and characteristics of the Yukon including Whitehorse and Yukon districts. It has a cover sheet saying "Descriptions of individual sets of EA computer print-outs 1961" and includes age groups, language, farm residence, mother tongue, birthplace, ethnic groups, religions, household, labour force including occupation divisions by sex.

Is it possible to generate similar profiles of other geographic regions for this census?

This question concerned detailed profiles for historic Censuses--based on this wonderful custom print out  from 1963 on the Yukon Territory .

For pre-1971 Censuses, StatCan Library archives can provide scans of print publications but these do not have the level of detail that contemporary profiles have. Also, much of this content is already scanned and is available at statisticscanada.

For 1971, 1981, 1986 and 1991, semi-custom tabulations can be produced for a fee.
