Physical Description
1.77 m of textual records
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of records pertaining to the administration of JIAS's core functions and operational activities. The records consist of correspondence, immigrant lists, memoranda, logs, tables, and articles for JIAS publications. Social Services records include correspondence, monthly aggregate case sheets, statistical reports of the Case Committee, and reports on integration programs for Moroccan and Russian immigrants in the 1970s.
The sub-series is arranged in chronological-alphabetical order, with blocks of related records kept together. These record blocks include: Social Services case sheets, which list immigrants' names, family structure, occupation, date of arrival, services rendered, request, decision, and remarks; Grant Reports (1979-1984), which are monthly statistics logs submitted to the Immigrant Settlement & Adaptation Program for reimbursement from Employment and Immigration Canada. These reports break down case workers’ activities into the number of hours spent on orientation, information, referral, interpretation, translation, escort, advocacy, and supportive counselling. Naturalization files (1935-1978) contain brief letters concerning the taking of the Oath of Allegiance and the names of naturalized immigrants. Translations files (1959-1988) consist of copies of documents translated by JIAS staff, of personal letters, birth certificates, marriage certificates, professional registrations and police conduct reports. United Jewish Relief Agencies' “Short term Social Services Statements of Administrative & Operational Expenditures” (1960-1981) are monthly tables submitted to JIAS’s overseeing agency, the United Jewish Relief Agencies. These tables record clients’ names, family structure, ages, occupation, date of arrival, services rendered, decision, and staff comments.
Access Restriction

Arrangement
This sub-series was created by the archivist from records originally part of series MG2 I1a K2 "Immigration Files - Administration, Projects." In the JIAS office, files were maintained in a central registry system of random numerical classification (these original numbers remain on the files).
