New Online Resource: Immigrants to Canada
Posted 13 November 2008
By Sylvie Tremblay, Acting Head, Canadian Genealogy Centre, Client Services Division, Library and Archives Canada


Thousands of emigrants from the British Isles braved the perilous sea-voyage to Canada during the early and mid-nineteenth century
Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is pleased to announce the launch of an online database, Immigrants to Canada.

The database contains Canadian immigration records held at LAC, many of which relate to immigrants from the British Isles arriving in Quebec and Ontario; also included are references to settlers in other provinces. Through this new database, researchers can access references to lists of immigrants and other types of records created before 1865, such as declarations of aliens and names of some Irish orphans.

You are invited to visit the database.

The contributions of many LAC staff were instrumental in the success of this project, and their efforts are much appreciated.
