Digital facsimile pages of the 1870 Archibald Census are available online from “Census,” Library and Archives Canada [LAC]. See “About the 1870 Census of Manitoba,” which includes a Search link.

The census can also be analyzed statistically online at Statistics Canada, “1870 – Census of Manitoba,” Western Canada, Censuses of Canada 1665 to 1871 E-Stat Census Tables. (Although as of 11 August 2013 the site has been unresponsive for at least a week.)

Update: Although the StatsCan e-stat page was permanently archived (shut down) and the links broken in 2013, the tables have been made available at Queen’s University website, http://library.queensu.ca/data/census-1665-1871 (accessed 15 February 2016).
