The UNI-CEN: Unified Infrastructure for Canadian Census Research project has produced digital boundary files in several geospatial file formats. The original source files have been modified to standardize attribute tables and metadata, including the handling of geographic identifiers.

CHANGELOG:
- 2023-04-03: CBF and DBF Original Shoreline files uploaded. Revised 1981–2021 Harmonized Shoreline CSD files with fixes to coastal areas in PEI and NL uploaded.
- 2023-02-04: Series 2023-01 uploaded, replacing all previous files. Changes were made to metadata formatting. Geographic identifier errors were fixed in the 1951, 1971, 1976, and 1981 census tract files. Geographic unit names were fixed in the census metropolitan area/census agglomeration files.
- 2023-01-16: Federal electoral district boundaries added.
- 2022-11-26: 1851-2021 Census boundaries added.

NOTES:
- The 1986 files retain internal lakes, undermining comparability with other years.
