Scope and content

Sub-series consists of the main register kept by Ottawa, 1913-1949 to list the C.I.36 certificates issued at Ottawa to replace identifying C.I.5 certificates issued before 1912. These older C.I.5s were deemed inadequate as identifying documents as they did not include photographs of the holders. The Chinese Immigration offices issued replacements to certain individuals as the occasion arose (for example, if a person applied for a travel document or other certification). The register covers C.I.36 certificates nos. 1-24249 (nos. 1-25 being spares), dated 28 January 1913 to 26 February 1949. All but a few of the persons listed arrived in Canada, 1895-1912. The entries are in numerical order, corresponding to a rough chronological order by date of issue. Each entry gives: the C.I.36 number; the person's name or names; his/her port, ship and date of arrival; his/her "serial number" (the Ottawa serial number, indicating the location of the person's entry in the General Registers); numbers of C.I.4 and C.I.5 certificates issued; file number of relevant case file (First central registry system); date of issue of C.I.36; and Remarks, usually a residence street address and name used on arrival in Canada (if different from current name).
