Additional information

These case files were created by the Admission Division of the Immigration Branch. The majority of these files were created during the 1960s. This material is comprised of case files containing information on individuals who were issued deportation notices after they were found guilty of violating Section 19 of the Immigration Act. This section of the Act stipulates that any individuals who possess severe health or mental problems, are unable to support themselves, or have committed a crime that may be punishable under an Act of Parliament, shall not be granted admission to Canada. In 1961, this Division issued 1,965 deportation orders. These cases are frequently appealed and are subsequently sent to the Immigration Appeal Board who provides a judgement either for or against the decision.

This material is in the form of case files which contain correspondence, internal memorandum, minutes of inquiry, detainee expense sheets, telegrams, warrants of arrest, deportation orders, and reports provided by the R.C.M.P. or local police. Some of the files also contain information from the Immigration Appeal Board hearing which include: notices of appeal, appeal reviews and exhibits, and the Immigration Appeal Board decisions.
