Irene, If they came directly to Canada, they the possible cities are
Quebec City and Montreal, Halifax and Saint John. If you know they
arrived in the winter, it could not be Montreal or Quebec City
(before the days of ice breakers, they were closed in the winter).
See http://www.collectionscanada.ca/genealogy/022-908.003-e.html for
additional details.

However, note that many immigrants arrived at New York or other US
ports and then proceeded to Canada via rail.

Montreal, Canada

Does anyone know to which port immigrants, whose final destination
was meant to be Montreal, would usually sail in the early part of
the twentieth century?
