The fonds consists of archives related to Canadian Pacific Steamships Limited’s promotion and operation of passenger, freight, and cruise lines. The records date from just before the creation of Canadian Pacific’s steamship services in 1883 to the late 1990s. The fonds includes records showing the management of the CPS and its precursors, but also reports from individual voyages of different vessels over time. There is a large series of records that appear to have been compiled together by Canadian Pacific historian George Musk. The fonds is arranged into five series: CPS-1) Business and Operations; CPS-2) Promotional Materials; CPS-3) Voyage Reports and Immigration Records; CPS-4) Musk Collection and CPS-5) Ledgers and Movement Books.
