Collection Name Department of Agriculture: Immigration
Description Reports discussing the activities of immigration agents during the year. Includes particulars about Mennonite settlements in Canada, reports on the quarantine station at Grosse Île, the colonisation of Manitoba, immigration to Winnipeg, lists of livestock and their condition and the class of immigrants arriving in Canada. Also includes letters from emigrants describing their settlement and experiences, migration statistics and information on the prospects within American states.
Series Description Records created and maintained by the Immigration Branch of the Department of Agriculture.
