Scope and content
Sub-series consists of a selection of "AN"-prefixed files that document the admission to Canada of individual immigrants classified as "Asiatic", 1940's-1960's, under both the general regulations and the special quota agreements. The files were opened, 1949-1967, apparently at Immigration headquarters in Ottawa. The files in volumes 716-718 were chosen for transfer to the National Archives in 1979 for their special historical or legal interest. These involve persons of distinctively desirable or questionable status, such as specialist scientists and successful entrepreneurs (on the one hand) or criminals, deportees, and other irregular entrants (on the other).
