Scope and content

The series consists of a record book created by the Vancouver Immigration Dept. in 1903. Between 1900 and 1908, British Columbia passed nine acts which empowered officials to require prospective immigrants to pass a written test in any language of Europe prior to admission. Of the nine acts, eight were disallowed by the federal government and one (1907) was reserved by the Lieutenant-Governor.

The book records the names and passport numbers of Japanese passengers coming into the Port of Vancouver, the date of arrival, the name of the ship, where the passenger was from, and whether or not they were allowed to pass into Canada.
