Admin History/Bio
In 1938, representatives from numerous national Jewish organizations formed the Canadian Coordinating Committee for Refugees. The Committee's purpose was to co-ordinate reception and aid for the many European Jews emigrating from Nazi-occupied regions, acting in the name of all Canadian Jewry in matters pertaining to "the refugee problem." The Committee's efforts were significantly curtailed by the limitations of Canadian immigration policy. However, its Farm Program succeeded in bringing many refugees to southern Quebec and the Ontario-Quebec border region as well as other areas across Canada. In 1939 the Committee merged with other Jewish aid organizations to form the United Jewish Refugee and War Relief Agencies (UJR&WRA), which became the UJRA following World War II.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of Settlers' Progress Reports outlining immigrants' property assets, crops produced, livestock owned, and the condition of their finances and assets.
Notes
This sub-series was formerly RG 286. It has been reduced to one file because it was determined that most of the records were created after the Canadian Coordinating Committee for Refugees merged and became UJRA. The rest of the RG 286 files have been integrated into the appropriate sub-series.
Access Restriction
Closed. Researchers must receive permission from the OJA Director prior to accessing the records.

Admin History/Bio
In 1939, The Canadian Jewish Congress Committee for Refugees was established in response to the persecution of Jews in Europe. It facilitated the entry into Canada of as many refugees as possible and provided assistance to those admitted. At the outbreak of the Second World War, it merged with other national and international organizations to form the United Jewish Refugee and War Relief Agencies, providing assistance to Jewish refugees in Canada and abroad. Following the war, the name of the organization was changed to United Jewish Relief Agencies (UJRA).
Scope and Content
Series consists of general files relating to the Settlement of Refugees in Canada.

Scope and Content
This sub-series documents the relationship of the UJRA (CJC) with the refugees admitted to Canada. Often the UJRA office was a starting point for newly-arrived refugees, who would be referred to Jewish Employment Service/Jewish Vocational Services for help finding a job, to hospitals, dentists and other health care providers for medical care, to Toronto Hebrew Free Loan, and sometimes to Jewish Immigrant Aid Services for accommodations and loans. The office in Toronto worked in cooperation with local refugee committees in centres like Hamilton, London and Oshawa, which would sometimes assist with or take over cases. In most cases the form of assistance given by the UJRA was financial, with decisions taken by the UJRA Farm & Establishment Committee. They granted loans for the purchase of farms, to either individuals or in many cases, a partnership of two refugees wishing to buy jointly. Refugee farmers settled across southern Ontario, from towns in the Chatham/London area, to ones in eastern Ontario towards Kingston/Cornwall, and the southern Niagara region. The largest numbers were concentrated near Hamilton and Oshawa. The UJRA helped immigrants survey and appraise properties and offered advice and guidance on farming to those with no experience. UJRA loans were granted also for the furnishing of homes, equipping of farms with machinery and livestock, medical services, visas for family members, and short-term "maintenance" costs while new immigrants got on their feet. For "urban" refugees, UJRA arranged lodgings, helped with transportation and baggage, ensured a family had food, tickets to High Holiday services, and school for the children. In some cases UJRA was called upon as arbitrator between disputing farming partners or family members.
Sub-series contains case files from clients of UJRA dating from 1938 to 1960. Until 1950, refugees were categorized as either "farmer" or "urban" settlers, and these designations remain written on the earlier files, while later ones are not categorized other than by name of the immigrant. Files include an identification form, either a "summary of contact" sheet with notes added over time, or a standard Loan Committee application form. Records also include correspondence.
The files are arranged in alphabetical order by refugee surname.
Notes
This sub-series is composed of former RG 292, RG 293 and RG 296, three separated sets of case files. Unspecified, farmer, and urban case files were combined into this series, and case files from RG 296 were pulled from amongst the administrative files.
Access Restriction
Closed. Researchers must receive permission from the OJA Director prior to accessing the records.
