This is a free genealogy database of Canada Immigrants from China who arrived between 1885 and 1949 provided by Library and Archives Canada. Free searches can be made by name, date of registration, or certificate number. “Given that some of the names are very difficult to read, some information in the database may be incorrect and/or incomplete. In your search, consider using slight variations on the spelling of the name. For example, if you are searching for the name “Low,” you might also try “Lon” or “Lor.”

“The General Registers of Chinese Immigration, 1885-1949 (RG 76 D2a) were created at the headquarters of the Chinese Immigration Service in Ottawa. These registers list all immigrants of Chinese origin arriving in Canada between 1885 and 1949. Some entries for residents arriving in Canada date back to 1860. The names in the registers are arranged numerically by serial number, in approximate chronological order by the date the notice of the immigrant’s arrival was submitted to Ottawa….This database provides access to 139,458 references to the General Registers of Chinese Immigration, the Port of New Westminster Register of Chinese Immigration and the Newfoundland Register of Arrivals and Outward Registrations held at Library and Archives Canada. The registers were consulted in order to verify the names of immigrants. The records have been digitized and are searchable by name.”
