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 as they often include the age, occupation, ethnic origin, religious denomination and the place of birth for the persons listed. For each census, the records are arranged by province or territory, and then are divided into districts which usually correspond to counties and cities. Districts are typically divided into sub-districts, corresponding to townships, parishes and larger towns. 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). According to the Census and Statistics Act (which received Royal Assent on May 16, 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.

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.
