Scope and content

Sidney and Islands Review, “Must Be Photographed”, 17 October 1913, Page 1.

“Must Be Photographed
An edict from the immigration department at Ottawa has been issued requiring every Chinaman to have his photograph taken and filed with the local immigration officers. In addition, particulars of each man’s age, occupation and genealogy must be given. The registrations must all be completed with a month, so the Chinatown photographers may expect a busy four weeks. The object of the order is not to cause any trouble for any Chinese who are at present in Canada, but to make it simpler for them to travel back to China, and to prevent any one from impersonating them. Similar regulations are in force in California and other states.”
