Following the outbreak of World War II, German and Austrian citizens living in Britain were arrested and interned in prison camps in Canada and Australia. Some of these internees were Jewish. Canadian Jewish Congress lobbied the Canadian government to release Jewish prisoners and provided social assistance and employment for those freed. Although this was a national effort, the project operated out of the Toronto (Central Region) office and so the case files formed part of the Central Region records.

Series consists of Internee case files.

The Plenary Sessions (as they were then known) were the final legislative resort of Canadian Jewry. They were held every second year, alternately in Toronto and Montreal, though this was not adhered to every time. (Once Montreal had two sessions in sequence). The Central Region held voting sessions in Toronto, at which delegate would be elected. The programme involved all the activities and projects of Congress by way of written and oral reports. Efforts were made - not always successful - to allow opportunity for discussion. The Resolutions Committee was a particularly hard-working unit. Resolutions embodied the policies and programme of Canadian Jewish Congress for the following 2 or 3 years. International speakers were always a feature of the Plenary.
Scope and Content
Series consists of general files of the Plenary Assembly.

Following the war, the name of the organization was changed to United Jewish Relief Agencies (UJRA).

During this period, Congress staff in Toronto maintained a central correspondence file arranged alphabetically by subject and by community within each year. The file rubrics tended to repeat themselves annually. Incoming and outgoing correspondence were integrated by subject. The purpose of this system was to enable staff members to be cognizant of developments in all departments. One had simply to peruse the central file to learn of activity in any particular area. The various standing committees also maintained their own correspondence files which overlap these years, as do the thematic files. The original arrangement was maintained in all of these record groups.
Scope and Content
Series is organized chronologically first and alphabetically by name or subject second. Also included are correspondence files specifically related to Shangai refugees from 1949-1950.
