Census of Canada question
November 14, 2007 4:39 PM   Subscribe

Does anyone know a place online where I can find the 1931 or 1941 population of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada?

This site gives historical census numbers for all the Canadian counties. This will have to do in the end but I would like to have the number for Fredericton alone if at all possible. Thanks!

the Canadian Census Bureau would be the best place to start.

Mr_Crazyhorse, ain't no such animal.

It's called Statistics Canada, or StatsCan.

Response by poster: Well, whatever it's called I'd been there already and I'm pretty sure it doesn't have what I need. Looks like it only has comprehensive data for the last decade or so but maybe I'm wrong.

Best answer: 1941: 10,062

Have you tried contacting City Hall or the Provincial Archives?

You can send an email request to the New Brunswck Public Library service and they will probably get back to you in a timely fashion.

Response by poster: Good find, neiltuppper. I think I will email the NB Library to see if they might double-check in the census books as well. Thanks all.
