Admin History/Bio
The Canadian Fur Industry Association was composed of The Independent Furriers Association of Toronto; Montreal Fur Manufacturers Guild Inc.; Fur Trade Association of Canada Inc.; Manitoba Division of the Furriers Guild; and the Associated Fur Manufacturers of Toronto. It was also referred to as "the association."
Manufacturers (employers) entering into an agreement with the association undertook and agreed to accept responsibility for workers in relation to their transportation, housing, term of employment and wages.
Employer deductions, not to exceed 10% from the weekly wages of the DPs, were to cover transportation costs from Halifax to Toronto, and financial assistance. Employees were hired for a period of twelve months and if the employee fulfilled all the terms of his agreement, no charge for transportation was made by the employer.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of executed agreements between garment industry manufacturers (employers) and the Canadian Fur Industry Association, letters to employers requesting employee names and date of employment, employee payroll deductions records and a hand drawn map locating the Jewish Immigrant Aid Society of Canada at 455 Spadina Ave., Toronto circa 1947.

Admin History/Bio
In late 1947 and early 1948 representatives of the Canadian garment industry organized what became known as the Tailor Project, an immigration program planned to select more than 2,200 skilled tailors from the Displaced Person camps of Europe, facilitate their immigration, and give them jobs in the garment trade and housing in Canada. The Tailor Project was based on similar schemes that had alleviated labour shortages in the logging and mining industries. Canadian Jewish Congress, eager to rescue Holocaust survivors from the DP camps, knew the government would approve a plan to bring in skilled workers to fill a shortage in the garment trades. Recognizing the plan had to come from within the garment industry itself, Congress provided guidance from behind the scenes.
The Tailor Project was the first program that permitted large numbers of Jewish adults to immigrate to Canada following the Second World War. More than half of the immigrants were Jewish. Max E. Enkin (men's clothing), Max Federman (fur workers), Joe Mack and others were sent by the Commission to Europe as part of the selection team. Provided they had the requisite skills, both single and married displaced persons were eligible to come to Canada.
Hundreds of tailoring firms in Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg and Vancouver were canvassed and many agreed to hire DP workers on 12-month contracts. The Canadian Overseas Commission, the industry's co-coordinating body, had to ensure proper housing for the expected workers. In response to Max Enkin's emphasis on providing accommodation, many individuals and community organizations reached out to those in need. Under the direction of the United Jewish Relief Agency, the office of the Canadian Overseas Garment Commission attended to the many and varying needs of the immigrant tailors, both Jewish and non-Jewish. In addition to providing financial assistance, the Commission gave attention to problems of landlord-tenant relationships, hospital, medical and dental care, gave direction and made referrals to other agencies for specialized services and co-operated with other organizations in their programs for immigrants.
The Tailor Project became the template for the Furrier Project that followed and spurred the formation in 1947 of the Jewish Vocational Service of Toronto, the original purpose of which was to help survivors of the Holocaust find employment.
