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.

Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of files organized by subject matter, containing correspondence, lists, forms, immigrant documents and a small amount of meeting minutes. The records highlight the different kinds of cases JIAS handled: deportations, admission of rabbis, of nurses, of skilled workers, of blind Displaced Persons; and the various activities it undertook, for example, financial assistance, employment assistance, and integration. A number of files classified by country of origin reveal the successive waves and sources of immigrants as time passed, including the United Kingdom, Poland, Shanghai, Eastern Europe, Cuba, Russia and Morocco. "Canadian Immigration" files contain correspondence about individual applicants, and immigration policy. The sub-series is arranged in its original alphabetical-chronological order.
