Index: Metis And Mixed Heritage People In Census Records

This is where I place links to my census posts that contain primarily – or at least many – individuals who are referred to as mixed, Metis or with other historical terms that we no longer use.

If you are already familiar with region or the ethnicity of your ancestors,  you may also wish to consult the Main Index: Native – First Peoples – Metis Census Records which leads to records that are organized by Nation or region.

If you are researching a particular surname, you may also find these indexes useful:

List of Metis Surnames of Ontario

For those who are unaware, in Canada the term metis is used in different ways in different settings and in different time periods. Presently, the term Metis with a capital M refers to one of three founding peoples of Canada (the First Nations, the Inuit and the Metis Nation). Most (but not all) of those officially recognized as Metis are in the Canadian West, however they are not always described that way in earlier census documents. Please note that many recognized Metis were recorded as mixed, even in the 1901 census. If the census says mixed that is what I transcribe below even if in many cases I actually know them to be Metis.

  • The original census records often contain  much more detailed information.  For example, older records in certain parts of Canada will indicate that a person is half First Nations and half Scottish, English or French. In some cases they’ll even indicate when there is a 1/4 mixture.
  • However in census returns subsequent to 1901, the reverse often occurs with mixed-heritage individuals..  In particular,, the grandchildren of mixed heritage couples are often reabsorbed into one community or the other for “labelling” purposes.

THE TERRITORIES, ASSIN., NWT, UNORG., YUKON


Note: There are several organizational shifts within what were the historical Territories, Northwest Territories and the Yukon, with administration of parts of some of the regions shifting to the northern parts of several provinces in different time periods. Also, I’ve placed the Alberta And Saskatchewan territories in their respective provinces.
