In 1957, the Government launched a recruitment program to bring university students into the Foreign Service as immigration officers. A CIHS member who was recruited through the program has provided us with a copy of the recruitment brochure which outlines recruitment standards, the career path and working/living conditions. The brochure was printed by the Queen’s Printer for the organizations then known as the Civil Service Commission and the Department of Citizenship and Immigration. Links to the English and French versions of the brochure appear below.
