Census of Canada, 1921 - Available to Researchers in the Next Few Weeks
Library and Archives Canada took custody of the Census of the Canadian population, 1921 from Statistics Canada and is beginning work to make it discoverable for Canadians. Closed for 92 years under the Statistics Act to protect individuals’ private information, the census data is being indexed so it can be mined for historical and genealogical research as soon as possible.
...
Library and Archives Canada is committed to making the 1921 Census’ rich and complex information accessible and available to all Canadians, no matter where they live, in the next few weeks. Further details on the 1921 Census’ availability will be shared once they are available.

It's now searchable by name as well as by browsing (temporarily for free) via:
http://search.ancestry.ca/search/db.aspx?dbid=8991

Warning Many of the districts have changed their names, as I found out when searching Gaspe - no hits, as the district's now called Gaspe-Madeleine Isle.

Note: The Ancestry.ca website will undergo scheduled maintenance on Wednesday, 30 October, from approximately 1:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. (EDT). During that time, some portions of the site may be unavailable. Thank you for your patience.
