This is where I’m indexing links to Canadian census returns for The Territories, the Northwest Territories and the Yukon.

Today Canada has ten provinces and three territories. The territories working from west to east are the Yukon (north of British Columbia and east of Alaska), the Northwest Territories (north of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan) and Nunavut (north of Manitoba).

Consulting census records for this geographical area is a little complicated because of the constantly changing political boundaries. In 1901, for census purposes, there was just one big area in Canada’s north and centre  called  “The Territories”. It was subdivided into five areas: Alberta, Assiniboia East, Assiniboia West, Saskatchewan and the Unorganized Territory.

As non-First Nations peoples moved in to the southernmost parts of Canada, the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan were carved out of the Territories. When the provinces of British Columbia, Manitoba and Quebec were created they also absorbed much land from the Territories. So, if you are researching your ancestors in the 1911 period or later,  you may find them in the Northwest Territories, the Yukon,  Alberta,  Saskatchewan, or the northern parts of British Columbia  – Manitoba or other provinces.
