I downloaded the 1881 census household record of my grandmother's family using How can I get a copy of the original census page?

Two ways:
1. Microfilm - Ontario census records are available worldwide on microfilm at LDS Family History Centres. For those who reside in Canada you can also obtain the census at any local library with a microfilm reader using Inter-Library Loan.

2. Internet - The 1881 census has been digitized and you can save or print an image of the original census page. The census can be searched for free at the Library & Archives Canada website, or as part of an subscription.
