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
Activities undertaken by the Committee for Soviet Jewry in Ontario and its affiliated partner organizations included political lobbying, telephone and letter-writing campaigns, product boycotting, symposiums, public rallies, petitions, marches and demonstrations. Among the highest profile activities were the annual Simcha Torah rallies in October and the annual commemorations of the execution of twenty-four Soviet Jewish writers and intellectuals, which had occurred on August 12, 1952 at Moscow's Liubianka prison. As well as organizing public protest activities, the Committee for Soviet Jewry established, in the 1980s, the Ida Nudel Humanitarian Award which emphasized the humanitarian work of a number of prominent Canadian women. Other non-protest activities included bar/ bat mitzvah twinning, family and prisoner sponsorships, and holiday greetings, all programmes that tied the daily lives of Soviet Jews to their Canadian counterparts.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of records documenting the wide range of above-listed protest activities in which the CJC and various affiliated organizations participated. The files include numerous photographs of mass rallies and group demonstrations, planning notes, correspondence, event notices and other promotional materials.
