Sub-sub-series consists of the client cards kept by the Jewish Vocational Services from the late 1940s and 1950s. Many of the individuals documented in these cards were refugees who were assisted by the JVS in securing a job.
The cards contain information such as the client name, date of birth, date of contact with JVS, type of work, weight, height, education, name of parents, hair colour, UI number, languages spoken, years in Canada, dependents, type of work they were searching for and education. Each one documents the work placements the individual was given and dates along with the occasional comments about those experiences. The cards are arranged in alphabetical order by surname.
Closed. Researchers must receive permission from the OJA Director (and whomever else) prior to accessing the records.
