This page shows the members of the Privy Council who were present at the meeting held on this day in 1938. The Order in Council with the immigration list was one of many Orders in Council that were approved during that meeting.
This is the first page of the Order in Council. It explains why the list is being presented to the Privy Council for their approval. It asks that the current regulations regarding immigration be waived for the immigrants on the attached list.
This is the first page of this list of approved immigrants. We call it Part One of the list because it shows the name, citizenship, age, current address and intended occupation in Canada for each immigrant.
Here is a detail of the first four entries in Part One of this list.
This page shows the first page of Part Two of this list. It contains more detailed information about the immigrants in the first four entries and also describes their sponsors. These descriptions normally include the ethnic or religious affiliation of the immigrant, their relationship to the sponsor, details about the sponsor's life in Canada and sometimes the name of a person who has helped to bring the immigrant's case before the Privy Council.
Here is the detail of the page above showing the information included in Part Two of this list for the first four entries.
This shows an entry from an immigration Order in Council from 1944. The format had changed to combine the former short and long entries.
This shows an entry from an immigration Order in Council from 1952. There is less information about each immigrant.
A page from an immigration Order in Council from 1959. At this point, the information for each immigrant is name, age, marital status, citizenship, and where they are living at the time. We only charge $10 for these requests.
