The 1916 Census Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta can still be brought up free at Archives Canada. You cannot search by name however, you must know the location and that can be difficult. So it seems you must pretty well know exactly the geographic location, District name, etc.
Hopefully Automated Genealogy is working on it and will have it available on their site.
For anyone interested in finding a location, I might be able to assist. If the individual took out a homestead (Land Grant) you can bring that up and they 'might' still be at that land location.
