Excerpt from Census of Manitoba, 1885-6: Recensement of Manitoba

This Census was taken under authority of the Act 48 Victoria, Cap. III, assented to on the lst May, 1885.

The information which relates to population is a statement of facts in existence at the time appointed for the taking of the census, on the 3lst July, 1886 all other information relating to products refers to the period of twelve months immediately preceding that date.

This report is accompanied by tables giving ratios, between districts, of population and products; also by a comparative statement of the two Censuses of 1881 and 1886, showing the progress made by the Province during these five years.

Since the Census of 1881 was taken, the Province of Manitoba has been reduced in area by about one-half, through the annexing to Ontario and Keewatin of that portion of territory lying east of Lake of the Woods, and which was then called the Manitoba Extension.

For the purpose of establishing comparisons between the two Censuses, the figures referring to the above annexed territory were deducted from the general result of the Census of 1881.

As in previous Censuses, the population 036 droit or de jure system was adopted for the enumeration of the people.

Recourse was had to the returns in the Indian Office, in order to Obtain information respecting the Indian population receiving pay under the treaties; and figures were taken from the registers kept. This course was necessary Owing to the nomadic habits of the Indians, and to the fact that few of the enumerators were able to speak their language. Those Indians, however, which did not receive pay under the treaties were enumerated in the same manner as the whites.
