WW1 and WW2 Internment Camps in Canada

The following is an announcement from Library and Archives Canada.

Ottawa, Ontario, November 25, 2010—Library and Archives Canada is pleased to announce the release of a new guide to its collection of documents on internment camps in Canada during both world wars (1914–1918 and 1939–1945).

This guide describes the extensive collection of governmental and private records generally consisting of textual documents on paper or on microfilm as well as publications about internment camps located on Canadian soil. The guide is available at the following address: http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/the-public/005-1142.27-e.html

There appears to be scant information on people who served as staff and guards at these camps.
