Colonization files. -- 1886-1940. -- 13.75 m of textual records. -- The series consists of files originating with the Canada Colonization Association, the Department of Immigration and Development (originally known as the Department of Colonization and Development), and various organizations connected with colonization, the Canada Colonization Association, or the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Before 1916, colonization was handled by the Department of Natural Resources, and before 1912 by the Canadian Pacific Railway land department in Winnipeg (except for irrigation block, handled by Calgary office). In 1919 the Canadian Pacific Railway, Canadian National Railway and the federal government formed the Canada Colonization Association, which in 1923 was wholly taken over by the Canadian Pacific Railway. This Association carried on all the colonization and settlement work in Western Canada for the Canadian Pacific Railway and in doing so helped, contributed to, or formed associations with many varied organizations.

Many of the associated organizations were small colonization boards scattered throughout the provinces, to which the Canada Colonization Association sent immigrants for placement within the community, the colonization boards collecting $1.00 for every person placed. However some colonization boards carried on a much greater scope of work in the field of settlement, and these included the Mennonite Land Settlement Board, the Central Women's Colonization Board, and the Lutheran Immigration Board.

Other organizations, such as the British Re-Union Association, figured predominately in the colonization of western Canada. This organization, whose purpose was the unite families or relatives from Britain, grew to such proportions that it was uniting relatives of almost every nationality. The organization not only sponsored immigrants, but financed many as well.

Another smaller body was the Colonists' Service Association, whose purpose was to help settle colonists to their best advantage.

The Canada Colonization Association was conceived by M.A. Brown, once a mayor of Medicine Hat. His idea was to institute an organization that would enter different foreign fields, secure settlers, and obtain listings of privately owned land adjacent to the railway through a central office, doing all this without profit and for the benefit of new settlers. The idea met with great success and was launched by a subscription of $1,500,000.

The Colonization files are divided into thirteen sections. Some of the sections are related, and are split up by date only. As much as possible, the order which seemed to exist in the papers has been retained. Canada Colonization Association files appear throughout the colonization group as may be expected due to their close association with all the various colonization organizations. The sections are:

Beiseker and Davidson Company. -- 1906-1944. -- T.L. Beiseker and C.H. Davidson were two bankers from North Dakota who formed the Calgary Colonization Company, which bought land (some from the Canadian Pacific Railway) in Alberta as early as 1907. Upon the death of Davidson in 1918, the Company was liquidated, with all assets and liabilities going to a new company formed T.L. Beiseker and the heirs of C.H. Davidson, known as Beiseker and Davidson. The business of this new company was to collect installments of outstanding contracts and sell the remaining land of the former company. The Canadian Pacific Railway, about the time of the liquidation of the Calgary Colonization Company, retained 18,143 acres of unsold land which thus reduced the company 's liability. The trustees of C.H. Davidson estate were the Minnesota Loan and Trust Company and the Northwestern National Bank and Trust Company. The firm 's business dragged on in Alberta until 1943, when finally their remaining land contracts and assets were transferred to the Canada Colonization Association.

These files also contain correspondence about the Alberta Pacific Elevator Company, set up by T.L Beiseker and C.H. Davidson in 1905 and managed by L.P. Strong, formerly of the Sayre Strong Grain and Mercantile Company of North Dakota. The correspondence deals with various liquidation procedures, land transactions, stock matters, etc.

Series 12 Gas development in southeastern Alberta. -- 1906-1913. -- 12.5 cm of textual records. -- In 1906, the Canadian Pacific Railway entered into an agreement with Eugene Coste of Toronto to drill a number of exploratory oil wells in southeastern Alberta. Some time later, they also agreed to assist the Calgary Natural Gas Company with a number of wells they were drilling near Calgary. Once Eugene Coste realized the possibilities of using the gas discovered from 1907-1910, he purchased most of the Canadian Pacific Railway interest in a number of wells. He also amalgamated a number of small gas companies, including the Calgary Natural Gas Company, into the Canadian Western Natural Gas, Light, Heat and Power Company. Correspondence in these files traces the arrangements made between the Canadian Pacific Railway and the various gas interests, including Coste, which took place before the Canadian Western Natural Gas, Light, Heat and Power Company was formed. The files were transferred from the Canadian Pacific Railway Land Department in Vancouver to the Department of Natural Resources in 1961 and ultimately to the library of Pan Canadian Petroleum Ltd., which provided photocopies to the Glenbow Archives in 1977.
