Why isn't my ancestor here?

Under the immigration regulations of 1930, the following people were allowed to enter Canada without the permission of the Privy Council:

 - British subjects with enough money to sustain themselves until they found employment

 - American citizens with enough money to sustain themselves until they found employment

 - prospective farmers from any country with enough money to sustain themselves until they found employment

 - the wife, and children under the age of 18, of a naturalized Canadian man

After 1937, the fiancé of a naturalized Canadian man was permitted to enter Canada without the permission of the Privy Council.

After the Second World War, specific numbers of people within the following groups were permitted to enter Canada without the permission of the Privy Council:

 - people from Displaced Person camps

 - ex-members of the Polish Armed Forces

 - citizens of Malta

 - terrazzo workers from Italy

If your ancestor was in any of these categories, their name will not be on these lists.   

You may not be able to find your ancestor because the spelling of names in the lists may not be the spelling you are familiar with.

If you and your parents were British subjects, your names will not be on these lists. Try an Access to Information request to IRC Canada.

Are there lists for immigrants arriving after 1960? These lists are with permission of the Privy council. Are there lists without permission of Privy council?
