Immigrants to Canada

This is a excellent website on immigration to Canada and is well worth a visit.

The information on these pages has been extracted from various government records, as well as the odd shipping record (mostly from the Allan Line). It contains, voyage accounts, emigration information, lists of ships sailing to Canada, information on the ports, and on the people. Many of these lists give the name of the ship, Master, Port of Departure, Port of Arrival and other such information. Some list the organization which sponsored the emigrants. Since passenger lists are rarely available for the early ships which came to Canada there are few of those, but other sources are being sought. The Immigration reports of the government sometimes contain names, but only rarely. Passenger lists for arrivals after 1865 can be obtained on microfilm, and a database of arrivals for 1925-35 is online, from the National Archives of Canada. Post 1935 records are available. Also, check out the Grosse Isle database.
