The webpage I was referring to is

The cost is $45.00 plus 7% tax for each individual record.  I know a handful of patrons at my FHC have ordered documents in the past.  Particularly useful of you have no birth place for a parent or grandparent.

  Hi Rose,

  Unfortunately the 1940 National Registration records are not house at LAC. However you can get information from Statistics Canada .  There is a brief explanation on LAC's website

  I expect the Registration was in substitute for the 1940 Census - which, during wartime, was not done.   The only good thing is that it is not closed for 92 years like a census because it falls under the Privacy Act - so a search can be done if the person has been dead more than 20 years (of if they are still alive - I presume, with their permission).  

  This is the info on the StatCan site:http://www5.statcan.gc.ca/bsolc/olc-cel/olc-cel?lang=eng&catno=93C0006
  You'll need to contact them by clicking on the word ORDER in the form.

  But it is expensive. But you might find what you are looking for.

  Good stuff Helen.

  Like you, my parents arrived in 1948.

  I was wondering if you could also give an explanation of, and  post the link to the 1940 National registration.  You are so good at this.  :-)

    Library and Archives Canada has published a number of Naturalization
    records - between 1915 and 1939 and 1939-1951

    1915-1939 is searchable by name  but the 1939-1951 set is only by month and
    year in which the Canada Gazette published the names of the new citizens .
    The Gazette info provides the Certificate number and type. Details about
    each set is outlined in the Introduction..

    Once you locate the individual, if you wish to order the Naturalization
    Certificate under ATIP (Access to Information) the process is outlined on
    the Intro page.

    In the pre-1939 index, I searched the name STUBEL and it came up with

    STUBELT and STUBEL - so if the key word is *in* the name - for the pre 1939 

    database - it should show up.

    The Canada Gazette process is more tedious because the names are listed
    alphabetically for every month in every year plus the supplementary pages.
    However, if you know the approximate month/year, then that would narrow it


     I don't have any direct ancestors who arrived and obtained citizenship
    before 1951 unfortunately - just shirt-tale relatives. My folks arrived in

    Good luck!
