1901 Canadian Census is completely indexed and linked to the original images.  http://automatedgenealogy.com/census/index.html

All three censuses can be accessed at www.automatedgenealogy.com

By using 'Canada and USA' Links.

Use these paths to access all three censuses. Anything else will take you to the National Archives of Canada site which is NOT indexed.

(Ignore the National Progress Summaries. Scroll down to the name box to enter a name. For the 1911 Census, you need to choose a province first. This will probably change as indexing is closer to completion. Scroll past the Soundex variations until you come to the list of names.)

Note: The Family History Library has the films for the 1901 and 1906 censuses in the census area, but not for the 1911 census.
