Excerpt from The Royal Commission Appointed to Inquire Into the Immigration of Italian Labourers to Montreal and the Alleged Fradulent Practices of Employment Agencies: Report of Commissioner, and Evidence

Extract from a Report of the Committee of the Honourable the Privy Council, approved by the Governor General on June 20, 1904.

On a report dated June 16, 1904, from the Minister of Labour, submitting that by an Order in Council passed on May as, 1904, it was referred to His Honour Judge Winchester, senior judge of the County Court of the county of York as commissioner under chapter 114, Revised Statutes of Canada, to inquire into certain complaints respecting the alleged employment of aliens in connection with the proposed National Transcontinental Railway, and that such inquiry is now in progress; that complaints have been made that a large number of Italian labourers have recently been brought to the city of Montreal; that it has been represented that many of these persons were induced to come to this country through representations made by persons in Canada that there was great need of labour in the Dominion in connection with various public works and enterprises, and that certain agencies and organizations are at the present time in existence in the city of Montreal for the purpose of further promoting such immigration; that many of the said persons on reaching Montreal failed to find employ ment as represented, and that in consequence much distress has resulted among those who have been so induced to come to Canada, and serious dissatisfaction has arisen among Canadian workingmen in the said city and elsewhere in the Dominion; that it is expedient that an inquiry be made to ascertain the circumstances which induced the said Italian labourers to come to Montreal, and the persons engaged, directly or indirect ly, in promoting their immigration, and the means and methods adopted in bringing about such immigration.

The Minister recommends that the said Judge Winchester make such further inquiry in connection with the present commission, and that the said Order in Council be amended by adding after the words the nature of the appointment applied for and the result of such application,' the words, also that an inquiry be had as to the circum stances which have induced Italian labourers to come to the city of Montreal from other countries during the present year, the persons engaged directly or indirectly in promoting their immigration and the means and methods adopted in bringing about such immigration.'
