Scope and content

Sub-series consists of central registry files related to the control of shipping, a function administered within Marine Services, although there was involvement with the Canadian Shipping Board. These files were assigned the 9000 block within the Transport Central Registry and some of the records were brought forward from the old registry of the Department of Marine and Fisheries. The majority of these records relate to shipping in the Second World. Subjects include, but are not limited to, transportation in the Yukon, wartime control of shipping, the requisition of ships, shipping in the Great Lakes, Japanese-Canadian vessels, merchant marine, Park steamships, the Canadian Shipping Board, shipping insurance, and the movement of goods.
