Contents[edit | edit source]

The 1871 and later censuses list for each member of the household:

  • Name.
  • Age.
  • Occupation.
  • Religious affiliation.
  • Birthplace (country or province).


The 1871 and 1881 censuses also list for each person:

  • Father’s origin or ethnic background.


  • The 1891 census, in addition, asks:
  • If persons are French Canadian.
  • For parents’ birthplaces.


The 1891 and later censuses also ask for a person’s:

  • Relationship to head of household.


The 1901 census also asks for:

  • A complete birth date, not just the year.
  • The year the person immigrated to Canada.
  • The year of naturalization.
  • The father’s racial or tribal origin, not whether the person was of French Canadian descent.
  • The 1901 census also contains a buildings and lands schedule for each locality. This schedule gives a city street address or a farm land description—such as township and range, or township, concession, and lot number—for most families.
