Scope and content

Series consists of subject files created and retained in the office of the Director of Internment Operations which relate to the internment in Canada of German and Italian prisoners of war and of Canadian residents whose loyalty was suspect. In addition to policy files, there are inspection reports and returns as well as files relating to welfare matters, complaints and intelligence. The finding aid is a list of files. The series also contains pay documents, medical documents and an alphabetic index of prisoners of war and internees on microfilm (see reels T-7020 to T-7057).
