With the info Viv found, we can easily drill down from:
to get the images. For 1911, we search first at the AG link on the census index page to find:

1911 Census of Canada
Home / 1911 / Ontario / York South / 33 Toronto / page 23

then at the LAC site since I can never save AG's images properly, to find:
(search for geog loc=york south, sd#=33 gets the ED - search help is useful for explaining answer fields if you're unused to Canadian censuses)

You can search for Parthenia 1906 at:
and select the appropriate voyage - there's only a couple of pages of images, so it's no bother finding her - she's dead last.
Right click on the image, then save as e003662687.jpg or maybe MaggieGrahamImmig.jpg or whatever.
I'm not real certain this is your Maggie: her a=25, she's born in Canada and is a returning Canadian, accompanied by two older Graham's (Robert a=42 + Thomas a=31, both Canadians & farmers).

I think this may possibly be the correct person, Ontario rings a bell in my memory. The age certainly fits for Maggie.
All I know is from memory as a child my father speaking of a sister who married & moved to Canada & the other sister following but sadly that is all I ever knew about them.
Thank you for the info you have found out.

I am trying to find information on 2 of my father's sisters.
I know that they were born in Glenmavis Lanarkshire Scotland.
Their names as I know of them were:
Maggie Graham born 1882
Jeannie Graham born 1889
Their parents were:
George & Catherine (Katie) Graham (nee Chalmers)
All I know of them is that they went to live in Canada in the early 1900's I think to Ottawa.
I have no other information on them or who they each married.
What I do know about the other siblings is:
Mary married a William Wilson 11/12/1908 in Lanarkshire Scotland.
Agnes married a John Coull in Lanarkshire also.
Both Mary & Agnes moved to NZ with their husbands & families.
Katie married David Liddell on the 15/07/1904 in Lanarkshire & they then made their home in Australia.
John married a lass by the name of Jane ? & lived their lives in Airdrie Scotland.
Alexander born 1895 I have no information as yet on.
William born 1897 firstly married then divorced a Catherine Nisbet in Airdrie Scotland,
He migrated to Australia where many years later he married Caroline O'Connor.
I would appreciate any info that anyone has.
