New Collection: Historical Census Boundaries
Scholars Portal has been working with map and data libraries across OCUL and beyond to convert and make available historical census boundary files from the Data Liberation Initiative (DLI), Statistics Canada. This data is now available openly, meaning anyone from the public can access these boundaries in the GeoPortal.
