Note: Algoma and Nipissing districts were mostly unsettled wilderness prior to 1883
when the Canadian Pacific Railway was built through Northern Ontario.

The 1871 census of Ontario was organized by Electoral Districts - not by counties
in geographic counter-clockwise sequence starting at Essex and ending at Algoma.
