Ask a Genealogist: Atlantic Canadian Railroad employees

(Occupations) Permanent link


I am looking for employment records fort Nova Scotia and New Brunswick Railroad employees.  Can you offer me a suggestion to locate these records?


The Library and Archives of Canada in Ottawa, Ontario have some of the surviving railroad employee records online already.  You can search by first and last name of the records of the Railway Employees Provident Fund setup in 1907.  This collection deals with employees of the Intercolonial and Prince Edward Island Railway.  You can start your search online at:
