Scope and Content
Series consists of official (published) and unofficial reports the Toronto JIAS office produced between 1926 and 1952. Several different kinds of reports were produced over time: executive secretary reports were those presented to the Toronto JIAS executive at its monthly meetings. These are detailed reports that record the number of clients and describe the services offered by the Toronto office: information bureau, legal aid, location of relatives overseas, reception of newly-arrived immigrants, employment, detention work, United States visas, remittances, refugees and fundraising efforts. Unique cases are often described in detail. Executive secretary reports may correspond to extant executive meeting minutes in Series 1.
The reports after 1935 are more concise “Monthly Reports” and “Reports of Activities” that the regional offices were required to submit to the National Office. These record statistics for meeting immigrant trains, the legal aid department, international services, remittances, information bureau, correspondence department, parcels, naturalization, translations, visits, U.S. visas, deportation, immigrants arrived, and the employment bureau. The Monthly Report was a form shared by the Montreal, Winnipeg, Toronto and Vancouver offices, though the reports in this series have only the Toronto numbers filled in.
Social Services reports from the 1950s give departmental statistics not included in the general JIAS monthly reports, including the total expenditure, the number of new applicants, the number assisted, the cases carried over from the previous month and to the next month, the total caseload and the number of cases closed.
In addition the series contains some year-in-review reports from the annual meetings of the executive and membership, and annual reports which include meeting proceedings. As well there is a small number of monthly cash statements.
Notes
