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
The Welfare Council of Toronto and District was Toronto's first community-wide social planning body. It was involved with other community, religious and labour groups in advocating for unemployment insurance, affordable housing, health insurance, public pensions, minimum wage levels, family support services and other social programs. Prior to its creation, multiple social welfare councils existed in Toronto under the Federation for Community Service; including the Child Welfare Council of Toronto. In 1925 the Family Welfare Association of America conducted an audit of the welfare agencies in Toronto and recommended the creation of a community-wide Council of Social Agencies. The formation of the Toronto Department of Public Welfare further heightened the need for a total Community Council, which would ensure joint planning and cooperation between the new municipal department and Toronto’s welfare agencies. Discussions for such a council began in 1934 and the Welfare Council of Toronto and District was created in 1937. Upon its creation, the Child Welfare Council ceased to function and many of its concerns were inherited by the new Council.
By the 1950s, the Welfare Council was involved in coordinating the many social and charitable services in the fields of health, welfare and recreation, through its member agencies. In the 1940s the United Community Chest was created as an outgrowth of the Council, but in 1956, when its name changed to the United Community Fund, the two entities decided to function as separate, independent agencies. In 1957, the Welfare Council’s name was changed to the Social Planning Council of Metropolitan Toronto.
Scope and Content
Series consists of textual records documenting the JFWB's professional membership with the Welfare Council of Toronto, involvement on its various committees, and participation in its various projects and studies. Included is correspondence, reports, meeting notices and minutes, statistics, forms, and questionnaires. Some records are of the Child Welfare Council of Toronto, an agency that ceased to exist upon the Council's formation in 1937 and whose activities were absorbed by it.
Access Restriction

Admin History/Bio
The Jewish Child Welfare Association (JCWA) was formed in 1936 through the amalgamation of the Jewish Children’s Bureau, the Jewish Big Brother Movement, and the Jewish Big Sister Committee. This merger was intended to improve service to families in the community by making one agency responsible for all cases dealing with children and adolescents. The JCWA’s funding primarily came from the Federation for Jewish Philanthropies (later the United Jewish Welfare Fund) and municipal and provincial grants.
The JCWA’s chairman was Bertram N. Davis and first executive secretary was Anne Gussack. Gussack was succeeded by Freda Manson in 1939 and Aaron B. Feld in 1941. Soon after its formation in 1936, the JCWA became one of the first unionized social agencies in Canada when it formed the Staff Association with the Jewish Family Welfare Bureau (JFWB).
Located at 179 Beverley Street, the JCWA’s core activities included placing children in foster homes, arranging adoptions, supervising children in their own homes, providing housekeeping services to families, and providing supervision and guidance to unmarried mothers. The JCWA paid for the foster children’s room and board, clothing, and medical care; supervised their religious education; and supplied scholarships for vocational training through its Jewish Children’s Vocational Fund. The JCWA also ran the Foster Mothers’ Parent Education Group, initiated a foster day care program to allow foster mothers to work, and arranged for the placement of children in summer camps. A constant problem for JCWA was the lack of appropriate foster homes. In order to secure more homes, the agency regularly engaged in a foster homefinding publicity campaign.
The Child Welfare Committee of the Hebrew Maternity Aid Society assisted the JCWA with finding and visiting foster homes, arranging adoptions, and attending to chronic clinical cases. The Hebrew Maternity Aid Society also participated in a Car Corp program with the JCWA by providing its social workers with volunteer drivers to help them travel to different locations.
The JCWA’s Big Brother and Big Sister Departments provided guidance for delinquent, troubled, and developmentally disabled adolescents through individual and group work. Both departments assisted troubled youth with employment, vocational training, school adjustment, and recreational activities. In 1941, the Big Sister Committee left the JCWA to become affiliated with the JFWB.
Discussions regarding the co-ordination of services between the JCWA and the JFWB began as early as 1935. Since both agencies worked with children and families, a merger was believed necessary to improve service to the community and ease confusion. In February 1943, the JCWA and the JFWB merged to form the Jewish Family and Child Services (JF & CS).

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.

Related files regarding loans may be found in the minutes of the Loan Committee in sub-series 6 of this series (4-6).

Admin History/Bio
As a portrait photographer, Sylvia Schwartz excelled at photographing children. Through the 1940s and 1950s she carved out a niche for herself, becoming well known in Toronto for specializing in this area. Because of her special relationship with children and the bond she was able to form with them, her child portraits display her most creative work.
Scope and Content
Series consists of negatives and proofs produced by Sylvia Schwartz in her portrait studio. Images depict children aged four months to twelve years old. They are all formal portraits, showing the children with a variety of props, poses and backdrops. Some depict children by themselves, while others are pictured with their siblings.
There are forty portraits total. For most images only the last name of the child is known.
Children from prominent familes include Barbara Raxlan and David Winters. Records have been arranged alphabetically by last name at the item level.
