The first census in Canada seems to have been taken in 1640,
when the inhabitants numbered 375, distributed as follows: married men,
64; married women (three born in Canada), 64; widower, 1; widows, 4;
unmarried men, 35; boys (30 born in Canada), 58; girls (24 born in
Canada), 48; nuns, 6; Jesuits, 29; others, 66. Benjamin Sulte finds the
population in 1650 to have been 705; and in 1663 about 2500. The census
of 1665 gives the total population as 3251. The first census of the
Dominion was taken in 1871, when the population was 3,635,024; the
census of 1881 gave a total of 4,324,810; of 1891, 4,833,239; of 1901,
5,371,315. See also Acadians. =Index=: (Lord Elgin era) Provided for by La
