Canadian passenger lists, 1925-1935.

Library and Archives Canada have just placed online images of passenger arrivals, 1925-1935, for Quebec City, Montreal, Halifax, Saint John, North Sydney, Vancouver and Victoria, New York, and Eastern U.S. Ports.

They are not searchable by keyword. Instead these are straightforward images from microfilm reels and are accessible by microfilm number. You start by clicking on the appropriate port of arrival at http://collectionscanada.gc.ca/microform-digitization/006003-110.01-e.php/. Clicking on help gives extensive information about these records including a tabulation of the date range for each microfilm.

You may be fortunate and find your passenger included in a series of old nominal indexes exist for the 1925 to 1935 records which can be searched from www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/immigration-1925/001012-100.01-e.php

Ancestry also have indexed passenger lists for this time period with links to the images.
