These 1966 to 1985 results were initially compiled by Allen Brown, but these were in the very basic form required to track individual car histories. Since then further details, such as laps completed, qualifying times and so on, have been added from Rob Ryder's extensive database.

Individual sources for this event

Autosport 24 Sep 1970 (report by David Phipps who was usually the photographer on Autosport's reports in 1970). Motor Sport November 1970 p1208-1209,1212 (by DSJ). Motoring News 24 Sep 1970 pp12-14 (by MGD). Sport Auto Novembre 1970 pp40-46 including 'Les Voitures en Course' (by "Elizabeth Hayward", the nom de plume of Priscilla Phipps, journalist, ghost-writer and wife of David Phipps who was reporting on this race for Autosport). Autocar 24 Sep 1970 pp24-27 (by F. David Stone). The Motor Racing Year No 2 p110-116 (by Anthony Pritchard). Autocar gave chassis numbers on the grid and even identified the use of spare cars in practice, and Sport Auto identified all the cars in 'Les Voitures en Course'.

The Tyrrell team had three entries for two drivers so the Tyrrell 001 and both March 701s were entered individually, McLaren had three M14s, Brabham had two BT33s, BRM entered four cars for three drivers, Ferrari brought two 312Bs, the March works team also had three cars entered for two drivers, as did Matra. The single-car teams were John Surtees' new car and Frank Williams' De Tomaso, and the privateers were Walker's Lotus 72 for Hill and Colin Crabbe Racing's March 701 for Peterson. That made 24 cars for 20 drivers, the spare cars being the two March 701s, a Matra MS120 and a BRM P153. It was unusual for Ferrari not to have a spare car, and even more unusual for Matra to have one. The spare BRM had the new engine with bifurcated-port heads, but was not raced. The Lotus team was absent, which meant there was one extra place on the grid with guaranteed start money, and there was an attempt to get Formula B driver and local driving school owner Jacques Couture into either the spare March or the spare BRM, but a lack of engines put paid to his hopes.

Jenks' 'Reflections on the Canadian Grand Prix' was in a more relaxed tone than his writings earlier in the year, wryly observing how fortunate F1 was that people "do not heed the dire warnings of the medical profession" and continue to smoke in sufficient numbers to justify the generous tobacco sponsorship money.
