StatCan Census Data for Achigan ...

Although we found mention of Achigan during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Over time, we expect to discover additional information that will be added to our Gazetteer.

As far as we can tell, Achigan has not been included in past StatCan census counts, so there is no population information for this community.

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Achigan and then turned east". While Achigan could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Achigan as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that Achigan could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.

Since confusion between is common, we searched and weren't able to find another Ontario community named Achigan.
