Library & Archives Canada: Censuses Census returns are official Government of Canada records that enumerate the country's population. They are an invaluable source of information for genealogy research. Starting in 1851, most census records included the names of every resident, their country or province of birth, age and many other details. Library and Archives Canada holds an extensive collection of Canadian census records from 1640 to 1926, and for Newfoundland from 1671 to 1945. Our holdings are listed in the sections below. About the census From 1851 to 1901, a census occurred every 10 years in Canada; this was confirmed by the British North America Act, also known as the Constitution Act, 1867. The first census of the Dominion of Canada was taken in 1871. According to the Census and Statistics Act of 1905, a general census of Canada was to occur in 1911, and every 10 years thereafter, and a census of population and agriculture was to be taken in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta in 1906, and every 10 years thereafter.

Inquiries about the records and requests for searches should be directed to: Canadian Genealogy Index 1600s-1900s This database contains over two million records referencing individuals from all regions of Canada, as well as early Alaska. The vast majority of the records fall between 1600 and the mid-to-late 1900s, although some records date before the 1500s. Gleaned during twenty years of research from over one thousand different sources - including city directories, marriage records, land records, census records, and more - this collection of names represents one of the most complete indexes to historical Canadian records available. This index helps you locate a particular individual in a specific time and place. Canada, like the United States, is a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic nation. The families living in the Atlantic provinces of Canada have been intertwined with the families of the New England states since the earliest times. The Canadian Genealogy Index begins primarily with French records, starting in 1604. In 1867, the Confederation united the existing provinces of Canada.
