Hi Doreen,

You already know. According to my records, the KOTA INTEN (operated by
Holland-America Line for the Netherlands Ministry of Shipping), from
Rotterdam, arrived at Quebec, PQ 1948-08-20 with 744 passengers.

Because of Canadian privacy laws, post 1935 Canadian passenger records are
still in the custody of Citizenship & Immigration, but you can make
application under "freedom of information" for your own record, however
certain conditions apply when wanting to consult the landing record of
others. What will be received is an extract from the passenger list rather
than a photocopy of the list itself.

You can make application for a copy of the extract of your own arrival.

Check here at the National Archives of Canada website for details
