The following is LAC's introduction to this helpful guide.
This guide consists of individual pages listing the organizations that sent children to Canada and the Homes where they were first received before placement. It also includes organizations that recruited older girls and boys for domestic employment and farm training; however, although they were juvenile immigrants, they were not Home Children.
Each page in the guide includes background information about the organization and the following sections on available resources:
- Research at Library and Archives Canada
- Research in Other Institutions
- Research Online
- Research in Published Sources
