The ship's manifest stated that Walter's passage was paid by the government of Ontario and his destination was Vimy Ridge Farm, Guelph, Ontario, where he would be trained as a farm laborer. Vimy Ridge Farm came under the Empire Settlement Act. This was a subsidized immigration program and allowed boys 16 years of age and over to come to Canada and learn about farming. - 1929 - St. John, New Brunswick, Canada Link to Google Earth
