I have received a request from a user who need to have access to the National Registration File of 1940:
The National Registration File of 1940 resulted from the compulsory registration of all persons, 16 years of age or older, in the period from 1940 to 1946. This information was originally obtained under the authority of The National Resources Mobilization Act and the War Measures Act. Custody of the records was subsequently given to Statistics Canada, then known as the Dominion Bureau of Statistics.
If the client wants to access information contained in this file, they can contact firstname.lastname@example.org
There are however limitations to what can be accessed. More information can be found here: https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/en/catalogue/93C0006
