Scope and content

Sub-sub-series consists of census returns for the 1871 Canadian census. The returns are from Nova Scotia (Volumes 1182-1248, Microfilm Reels C-10395, C-10540 to C-10570), New Brunswick (Volumes 1129- 1181, Microfilm Reels C-10372 to C-10395), Quebec (Volumes 921-1128, Microfilm Reels C-10024 to C-10097, C-10344 to C-10372) and Ontario (Volumes 625-920, Microfilm Reels C-9888 to C-10024). In 1871 nine schedules were compiled - personal census; agricultural census; nominal return of the living; nominal return of deaths within the last twelve months; public institutions; real estate; vehicles and implements; cultivated land, field products and plants and fruits; livestock, animal products, homemade fabrics and furs; industrial establishments; products of the forest; shipping and fisheries; and mineral products. All nine schedules are available on microfilm.
