Images of a list of approved immigrants

We have photographed and indexed the lists of names contained in Orders in Council of the Privy Council of Canada from 1930 to 1960 that waived or made exceptions to the existing immigration regulations for the specific people named in the lists.

The photographs below are similar to the ones we will send you except we will not blank out the names in the entry that contains information about your ancestor.

Please email us at orderincouncillists@outlook.com telling us the name of your ancestor and we will email you the photographs of the list containing their information.

If you can't view the photographs, are not satisfied with the quality of the photographs, or the information is not about your ancestor, you do not have to pay us.

We charge $20 CAD (Canadian Dollars) for Canadians and $20 USD (American Dollars) for all other customers to provide all the photographs containing information about your ancestor.  Payment is by cheque or money order.

You are welcome to use the photographs but the copyright remains with us.  If you post the photographs on a website, please credit us by indicating:

This page shows the members of the Privy Council who were present at the meeting held on this day. The Order in Council with the immigration list was one of many Orders in Council that were approved during that meeting.
Here is a detail of the page above showing that Prime Minister Mackenzie King was present at this sitting of the Privy Council on 14 March 1938.
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.
Order in Council P.C. 695 stated that only British subjects, American citizens and people intending to be farmers who had enough money to support themselves until they found employment could enter Canada. Also, wives and children under the age of 18 of men already in Canada were allowed to enter. Everyone else had to be approved by the Privy Council. You can read Order in Council P.C. 695 in the 'Regulations' page of this website.
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.

Where do I find immigration from Ireland to Canada in 1950s? A friend's older brothers (aka Tuam babies), were illegally adopted out and sent there.
