Scope and content
Sub-series consists of sample Chinese immigration certificates - (C.I.5, C.I.28, C.I.30, and C.I.36), covering the period 1899 to 1953. The C.I. certificates were used, along with the Chinese Immigration Registers, to control the movement of Chinese people in and out of the country, and of seamen sailing out of the Great Lakes system of Ontario. Those in the categories C.I.5, C.I.28, C.I.30, and C.I.36 were the main personal identifying certificates issued to individuals. The certificates in volume 712 appear to be samples of documents never collected by the persons to whom they were issued, or confiscated as a result of violations of exit regulations.
