The emigrants were often hired for a period of three years. Thus they were called les “Trente-six mois”. Over 55% of recruits travelled to Canada with families. They were to be paid from 40 to 120 livres per year. In addition they were provided transportation to Nouvelle France and were to either receive some land or be paid to return to France. A significant fraction of recruits were skilled and literate. According to perche-quebec.com about 20% of emigrants returned to France shortly after their initial assigment in New France.
The criterion for inclusion in the Percheron Immigration Category is that any given name listed in the Category also be included in either perche-quebec.com's "liste de 305 émigrants percherons partis en Nouvelle-France au XVIIe siècle" or perche-canada.net's list of 320 Émigrants percherons partis au Canada or the map and the current list of 327 mostly immigrant Percherons below based largely on pp. 480, 571-577 of Gervais Carpin's « Le Réseau du Canada ».
