 CIC Canada | Forging Our Legacy: Canadian Citizenship and Immigration, 1900-1977
The Canadian Citizenship Act, which was enacted on 27 June 1946 and came into force on 1 January 1947, provided for the conferring of a common Canadian citizenship on all Canadians, whether or not they had been born in Canada.
Canadian citizenship, however, was deemed a privilege to be granted only to those considered qualified.
Not surprisingly, the Canadian Citizenship Act of 1947 coincided with a post-war rise in immigration.

 The Chinese Immigration Act, 1923 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Chinese Immigration Act, 1923, known in the Chinese-Canadian community as the Chinese Exclusion Act, was an act passed by the federal government of Canada, banning most forms of Chinese immigration to Canada.
Prior to 1923, Chinese immigration was already heavily controlled by the Chinese Immigration Act of 1885, which imposed a hefty head tax on all immigrants from China.
Due to both a feeling of horror after Nazi race-oriented deathcamps were discovered and the contribution of Chinese communities in Canada during World War II, the Canadian government repealed the act on May 14, 1947 (necessary with the enactment of the Canadian Citizenship Act 1946 on July 1, 1947).
