Release of a new version of the Census of Canada, 1891 database

Library and Archives Canada is pleased to announce the release of a new version of the Census of Canada, 1891 database. This third general census covered the seven provinces and one territory that were then part of Confederation: British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and the Northwest Territories.

The new version includes suggestions for corrections that were received from users in recent months, as well as revised district and sub-district information.

  1. Do you accept corrections for the 1911 census entries….many, many, many misspellings and mistakes with aboriginal names that I can correct for LAC.

    • If you would like to suggest corrections, please use our Suggest a correction link which is available on each item display page of the 1911 census. Corrections will be done in a timely manner and will appear in the following days. Thank you for your contribution.
