Abstract: Canada began accepting immigrants from the Displaced Persons camps in Europe in the summer of 1947.* There were two means of entry: one, in which Canadian relatives of the DP would sponsor him or her; a second, in which the would-be immigrant signed a contract to work for a private employer in Canada for one year. Male DPs could choose among forestry, mining, railroad and construction work; family groups could work on farms. Women had only two schemes: a restricted one for sweat-shops, and a very open one for domestic servants — 'domestics' either for private homes or for medical institutions
