As in Ireland the data is gathered in our census in Canada. I am  
actually employed to archive the census at present so I am answering.  
But the data you are looking for is not always asked of every  
Canadian to reduce response burden. Every kth Canadian is asked  
instead. Recently k=5.

visit www.statcan.ca here you must search yourself.

as in Australia the data is mostly free these days. Although there  
are software products that contain census data.
