This unique reference volume was published in 1876 as a hard copy publication and has been out of print for over a century. It is a companion piece to the later volume: Historical statistics of Canada, 2nd edition (catalogue numbers 11-516-XIE, 11-516-XPE).
To preserve this important source of historical statistics on Canada, the original book was re-captured in electronic form as text and tables. All data have been verified to reflect what was originally published. No changes have been made other than correcting obvious errors in summation in the original paper volume. The terminology used to describe the population, its economic activity and its geographic location remains unchanged.
