Answers are the (non-Canadian) places of birth recorded by the census of Canada, 1921, as reported in "Birthplaces by sex for Canada and provinces, 1931" (Dominion Bureau of Statistics, Census Bulletin no. XV, 1932, with comparative tables for 1911 and 1921). For the UK the censuses recorded certain subdivisions rather than the entire country. Other countries and/or colonies may be joined together. Anything missing was probably included in "Other", which is not included here. Remember what was part of Canada in 1921, and also that some countries may no longer exist!
