Administrative history

The Brandon Assisted Passages Association was created in 1911 for the purpose of providing loans to "english speaking artisans" (sic) who wished to immigrate to Canada and work in Brandon. In 1913, the Association was renamed the Brandon Imperial Home Reunion Association. The Association continued to operate and provided passage assistance in the form of loans to many immigrants until loan defaults mounted during the Great War. After 1917, no further loans were given.

Custodial history

This fonds was accessioned in 1997. Its custodial history prior to this is unknown, but it was at one time in the posession of a H.R. Hoffman, and well as Richardson & Bishop Ltd. in Brandon.

Scope and content

This fonds consists of a minute book and a single page letter. The minute book included is a record of every meeting of the B.A.P.A./B.I.H.R.A. It includes the names of the board members, the names of the applicants (in some cases their addresses), and the amounts loaned. In some instances, the fonds provides a documentary record of loan repayment.
