Scope and content
This microfilm file contains records maintained by the Department of Immigration on the "Repatriation of Japanese" from 1945 to 1947. Included are lists of exiled individuals as well as correspondence relating to the logistical details of the deportation procedure (e.g., transportation costs). These records pertain primarily to those being deported on the S.S. Marine Angel and S.S. General Meigs. Questions of the revocation of citizenship and Orders-in-Council P.C. 7355, 7356, and 7357 are considered. Also included is the following: correspondence pertaining to the deportation of Buddhist priests and missionaries and the extensive records of individuals under investigation; a comprehensive and extensive list, dated 1946, of Naturalized Canadians "repatriated" to Japan; a list which appears to note whether or not individuals signed for "voluntary repatriation" or not; and another list of individuals who were "deprived of their status as Canadian national and British subjects under P.C. 7356 as of December 15, 1945 (as revised April 30, 1953)".

Readers of these historical materials will encounter derogatory references to Japanese Canadians and euphemisms used to obscure the intent and impacts of the internment and dispossession. While these are important realities of the history, the Landscapes of Injustice Research Collective urges users to carefully consider their own terminological choices in writing and speaking about this topic today as we confront past injustice.
