Scope and Content

Series consists of certificates issued by Sydney Robjohns, Ontario's emigration agent in London, to steam ship operators. These certificates guaranteed a part of the payment for passage of emigrants to Ontario. The steam ship operator would then submit the certificate to the Department of Immigration for reimbursement. Only ten of the certificates are extant.

The bonus certificates can record the following information: name of emigrant, passage ticket number, port of embarkation, name of ship and date of sailing.
