Canadian Naturalization Database
Library and Archives of Canada. 22 July 2009:
New Version of the Canadian Naturalization 1915-1932 database
This database now includes the names of 206,731 individuals who applied for and received status as naturalized Canadians from 1915 to 1932. This database is one of the few Canadian genealogical recources specifically designed to benefit those researchers with roots outside of the British Commonwealth. References located in the database can be used to request copies of the actual naturalization records, which are held by Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

Support for the digitization of the images was provided by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Ottawa ( The contrubutions of many LAC staff were also instrumental in the success of this project.
