Census Agriculture Region (CAR) Boundary Files

I’m trying to locate ag region boundary files prior to 2001. I’ve looked through the various subdirectories on the EFT server by cannot find what I’m looking for.

Looks like we have 1996 CAR boundaries in the GeoPortal$DLI_1996_Census_CBF_Eng_Nat_car

And something called the Agricultural Ecumene layers from earlier years (1986 and 1991)

If you load the layers to the map and go to the ‘Download’ tab and choose ‘Download all’ we’ve packaged the original data from StatCan in there (should be in E00 format). For 1996 this file was named ‘car96cangeo.e00’.
