Indian immigrants on board the KOMAGATA MARU in English Bay, Vancouver, British Columbia. 1914. This reproduction is a copy of the version available on the web.

The Continuous Journey Regulation (an amendment to the Immigration Act of 1906) passed on April 10, 1908. This in effect blocked Indian immigration because passenger agents would not sell natives of India tickets to Canada. This also led to the SS Komagata Maru Incident in 1914.
