Indexed Canada Passenger Lists, 1881-1922 on FamilySearch

Now on FamilySearch.org, indexed records with images of originals of incoming ships passenger lists "for the ports of Quebec City, 1900-1921; Halifax, 1881-1922; Saint John, 1900-1912; North Sydney, 1906-1912; Vancouver, 1905-1912; Victoria, 1905-1912; New York, 1906-1912; and Eastern US Ports, 1905-1912. The lists for United States ports include only those names of passengers with intentions of proceeding directly to Canada." See them at https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1823240

This appears to be mostly a subset of the records already available at Ancestry, although there may be some new information, e.g. Quebec 1909-1918. It would be nice to know if it's a new index.

Well, so far I've located four family members (two on my side; two on my husband's side) and confirmed their date of arrival in Canada. They hadn't shown up on Ancestry searches and it should be emphasized that, unlike Ancestry, Family Search is making this information available for free.
