I am not sure what you mean by Vancouver BC archives.gov site.

Odds are your person did not come before 1945. Even after the war, immigration from Germany was restricted for a few years. And in any event, those records are not yet open for public access, although you can ask for a copy of an individual's record.

More information is near the bottom of this page:


(CanGenealogy is a site that I put together for all of the major Canadian sites.)
