Hello Marion

I just noticed your posting in this blog - I did a quick Google search for Canadian passenger lists and found the following site from the National Archives of Canada which may be of interest to you: http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/genealogy/022-908.007-e.html

Also, some more contextual information about post-1935 immigration records can be found at: http://www.theshipslist.com/Research/canadarecords.htm.  Half way down the page is the information that is most relevant to what you are interested in: 


The records for immigration to Canada, which were created from January 1st 1936, are not yet available to the public. You are able to obtain an abstract from the landing certificate for your own arrival, but Citizenship and Immigration will not be able to copy the full passenger list for you because of Canadian privacy laws. You can read about post-1935 records on The National Archives of Canada website. You are also able to obtain an abstract for arrivals of others in the post-1935 period, however, certain conditions apply . . . see the post-1935 records link above."

I hope this gives you an idea of where you may be able to start looking for your information.

Thank you Tonia for your info, I appreciate this as I'm not that great on computers, but gives me some where to look farther. I do have a copy of when I left Greenock 1957 as a child, but no info of when I landed, mum passed so all info is lost. Thank you
