Yet the lives of those who lived and laboured to fashion these changes remain largely hidden from historical view. The Dawn of Canadas Century presents close and systematic interpretations of everyday lives based on the first national sample of the 1911 census. Written by many of Canadas leading historical researchers, The Dawn of Canadas Century demonstrates the wide-ranging and revealing social histories made possible by the new Canadian Century Research Infrastructure, an innovative database of national samples of decennial census microdata, from 1911 through 1951.

This revealing collection sheds new light on topics including identity and language, the socio-demography of aboriginal populations, national labour market dynamics, earnings distributions, social mobility, gender and immigration experiences, and the technologies of census taking. Situating early twentieth-century Canada within international historical population studies, these essays provide new ways to understand individuals lives and connect them to larger structural changes.
