Findmypast adds 1881 and 1891 Canada Censuses

When you subscribe to one of the major genealogy websites you expect to have access to standard datasets like censuses. You look for the subscription services to provide an integrated search across a range of those databases.
Findmypast is playing catch up, having virtually ignored Canada for a long while. This week their addition is the 1881 and 1891 censuses.
Not sure which Canadian censuses are available at which site? Is there free access? This table should help.
