To highlight the nature of immigration policy in Canada not only documentary sources (laws and by-laws, recordkeeping documents), but also official and unofficial press, memoirs, correspondence, statistical data, etc. were involved. When taken together it reflects the influence of the lawmaking on the nature and amount of resettlement flows from Ukraine and the condition of the Ukrainian immigrants. While writing this article, methods of searching and selection of sources, their analysis and synthesis, systematization and classification were used. Besides, criticism of chosen sources with the estimation of their content, objectivity and ascertainment of the significance for the investigation of the immigration policy of Canada concerning the Ukrainian immigrants in 1918 – 1939s were also utilized in the article. Information potential of archival and published materials within the indicated field has been defined and the significance of the presented facts for scientists has been shown.
