Scope and content

Sub-sub-series consists of C.I.9 certificates issued at Vancouver and Victoria, September 1910 to 1953. Certificates issued before September 1910 may have been handed over to the traveller, or may have been retained and destroyed in local offices. The certificates are organized by port, and are grouped in two groups for each port, one for persons born abroad and one for "native-born" persons. Each of these four groups is numbered separately, and is organized in numerical order, roughly by date of issue. Both redeemed and cancelled (expired) certificates are included. Some certificates are missing. Each certificate bears the following information: C.I.9 date and port of issue; details of planned travel, including place and date of sailing, trip name, port of destination and port of proposed return; personal information, including the holder's name, address in Canada, photograph, year of first arrival (if foreign-born), place of residence and year of first residence there, C.I.5 certificate number (if any) occupation, birthplace, age, height, and distinctive facial features; names and residence of two friends; holder's signature in Chinese characters; and data on holder's return, including (if returned) date and port of return, signature of inspecting officer, or date of letter of authorization; or (if failed to return) annotation indicating expiry of certificate. The C.I.9 certificates from Victoria include born abroad certificates nos. 15701-61396, issued between 7 September 1910 and March 20, 1953 (reels T-6038 to T-6045 and T-16580 to 16588) . Other C.I.9 certificates from Victoria include born in Canada certificates nos. 1-2375, issued 7 May 1913 to 24 July 1952 (reel T-6046). No further certificates were issued after these dates. The C.I.9 certificates from Vancouver include born abroad certificates nos. 17175-94195, issued between 28 September 1910 and January 9, 1953 (reels T-6047 to T-6051 and T-16591 to T-16613). Other C.I.9 certificates from Vancouver include "born in Canada" ("Native-Born" Persons) certificates nos. 1-3240 covering the period 1915-1939 (reel T-6052).
