History of Prince Edward Island Censuses[edit | edit source]

In 1851, Canada begin keeping censuses every 10 years. However, these censuses were often taken in different years, and it was not until 1871, after the Dominion of Canada was created, that censuses were taken regularly.[1] Prince Edward Island was first enumerated on the 1881 Canada census.
