You are now able to find the scans for all these passenger lists online at
the National Library and Archives of Canada (they are NOT indexed)
Canadian Passenger Lists, 1865-1922
Maybe you have more information regarding the date of departure or arrival
along with the month, which could help more, but if you don't, it shouldn't
be too hard a task to check all of these three lists online, however, if
you find the images too difficult to read online, you can have your local
library bring in the microfilm for you.
The passenger manifests are on Microfilm at the Library & Archives of
Canada [LAC], in Ottawa. The Ships are placed on the reel, in order of arrival.
You can borrow this reel on an Inter Library Loan [ILL]. You can find the
details for this procedure at this LAC Genealogy Research URL
You are also able to ILL free of charge, from Ottawa, to libraries in the
US, and outside
North America. These microfilms contain arrivals from ALL ports, they are
not indexed. The LAC will allow your Library to borrow up to six microfilms
on your behalf, per request.
The LDS now have copies of the post-1900 Canadian arrivals, so check here
for links and
I see you have a Canadian email address. Here find a list of institutions
in Canada who also have copies of this microfilm. You may have one close by.
