Textual records: This finding aid consists of two lists. One that has the first and last file number and the second one which is restricted which lists box number, file number, title and outside dates 76-71 (Paper)
Three series of immigration case files are represented in this accession, two specialized and one general. The AP (Assistant Passage) and W (Warrant) series are files on the repayment of loans granted to immigrants requiring financial assistance to travel to Canada, and are numbered and arranged by loan agreement of warrant number. The remainder are regular immigrant case files from the branch's first central registry system, divided up into successive numbered subseries. They begin with a "straight-numeric" (unprefixed) series in the range 1 to 999,999 and continue with files from eight later subseries (each in the range 1 to 99,999) with prefixed A, B, C, D, E, HQ1, HQ2 AND HQ3, in chronological order.
A random number generator was used to arrive at a ten per cent sample of the total in each series for transfer to the PAC, except that the earliest four series (boxes 92-94) were kept in their entirety.
