- For the 2011 Census, all map reference guides have been combined into one guide titled the Reference Maps and Thematic Maps, Reference guide (Catalogue no.92-143-G). This guide now also includes information on thematic maps.

- Embedded links have been added to the four national reference maps, the 23 Census Division and Census Subdivision reference maps and the Index Map in the Standard Geographical Classification [SGC] Volume II (Catalogue no. 12-572-X). Letters representing each National Map have been added in the top right corner to facilitate linking. In addition, the Index Map contains links to individual Census Division and Census Subdivision reference maps.
