Additional information about the lists

The sponsor in Canada had to provide proof that they could support the new immigrant and that the immigrant would not take employment away from a Canadian.  As a result, the second part of the list described the type of work the sponsor had, where he was employed and even how much money he had in his bank account. 

The immigrants on these lists were approved to come to Canada for only five months.  If the immigrant could not arrange their passage to Canada within that time, they had to re-apply.

Until 1937 many of the immigrants were women being sponsored by their fiancés who were living and working in Canada.  In 1937 the regulations were changed to allow a naturalized Canadian man to sponsor his fiancée.  As a result, names of fiancées don't appear in the lists after 1937.

Many of the immigrants being approved were already living in Canada as visitors but had decided to stay permanently.
