Notes
"We might have a more technically correct title to this Bulletin, but we desire to distinguish it from Bulletin No. 108, to which it is a direct sequel. That Bulletin, entitled `Social Insurance and Material Aid in Canada', was published in May 1942. We publish this Bulletin to keep the clergy of our Church and other readers abreast of governmental movements towards an adequate plan of `social security' for our people." "Our Council for Social Service, acting carefully under General Synod and its Executive Council, has urged a closer co-operation of provincial and federal action, a unified plan for a minimum income for all the disabilities of life, and in appropriate matters the active participation of all in a contributory plan". "As well, however, this present Bulletin has a more practical object -- to let our clergy, particularly, know what actual measures of assistance are available for their people, for Old Age, Children, Mothers, the Family, the sick and helpless." "Dr. Charlotte Whitton, a member of our Council, has again come to our aid. The main article in the Bulletin, with its various schedules, has been supplied by her. Under her three main headings, Dr. Whitton has indicated the differences between Social Insurance (for Unemployment only, thus far), Social Assistance, and the more general (but very practical) Social Utilities from which all citizens derive help. We are indebted to her. As we go to press public announcement has been made of annual grants amounting to $30,000,000 to be made by the Federal Government to the Provinces to assist them in various improvements or additions to their health services. This is welcome news. We trust that all Provinces will participate in the responsibilities and benefits. This may prove to be a first step towards a plan for nation-wide health services on a prepaid basis". -- Editor's Note.

"The subject of immigration into Canada is a very difficult one; not simple, but extremely complex. It involves not only the problem of assimilating large numbers of aliens who do not speak English, and whose ways, ideals and outlook on life are radically, and in the case of the older ones at least, ineradicably different from our own, but also it involves another great problem, the effect of this influx of cheap, unskilled labour in to the industrial markets, and that is, perhaps, an even more difficult question that the other. Happily we have the experience of the United States to learn from. .... With the general, political and economic subject of immigration, in so far as it does not involve any moral or religious question, the Council for Social Services and the Church of England in Canada are not concerned; with certain aspects of it they are deeply interested, and it is with these that the present Bulletin deals, namely with Asiatic immigration (p. 3)."

"In these dark days our responsibility as citizens of a free country and empire is clear -- we must do all in our power to win this war. As Christians, while acknowledging with penitence our past sins and failures, and being daily insistent that efforts and plans of our leaders be tested against the background of the Kingdom of Righteousness, we are thankful that we can accept our cause as duty. As Christian citizens we can and should be, the more ready to sacrifice much more than we have done in an `all-out' war effort. ... On May 28th [1941] the Executive Committee of our Council for Social Service adopted a Resolution calling for this effort and this lead from our peoples and Government; for the compulsory selective service of all manpower and for greater control over the resources and productive machinery of our country. This Resolution is reprinted below in this Bulletin. One September 25th [1941] the Resolution was adopted by the whole Council in the Annual Meeting and the next day was ratified and accepted by the Executive Council of General Synod. Today, when the matter is an acute issue, we are glad to say that our Church adopted this statement thus early. There is in this Resolution no word of racial bias or antagonism and no reflection of party politics. These things we deplore. We can only pray that all our own Church people will answer the call to sacrifice of ourselves, our sons and our daughters, of our resources, profits, wages, and of our rights and group privileges for the common cause. We pray that all our Canadian peoples will be found worthy of the Cause committed to them, for it is indeed the cause of freedom and righteousness. ..... In this Bulletin, centering around the great Atlantic Pronouncement of the Prime Minister of Britain and the President of the United States, we have gathered together several of such statements by other leading bodies, at the same time venturing on two brief interpretations of the Atlantic Charter." -- Editor's Foreword, p. [1].

Contents: The Beginning of Christian Social Service / J.H.H. Coleman -- Social Service Notes and News.
"Is Social Service an optional subject in the Christian curriculum ? Is it entitled to the place which the Canadian Church has assigned to it as a recognized department of its activities along with Missions and Religious Education ? If so, is the function of the rank and file of the people of the Church discharged by contributions in response to the annual appeal for the support of the work of the Council ? .... [I]n one of the most profound passages of the New Testament [St. Paul] emphasises the principle that the spirit of Social Service is to be developed and cherished in every disciple of Jesus Christ. It is not a frill or a fad but an essential for those who seek to be in harmony with the mind of the Master. `Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Le this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.' The Incarnation of the Son of God (which he proceeds to describe) is the supreme act of Social Service. It is also the ideal for the `mind' of those who feel the constraint of that love. `Those who have looked upward and seen the vision of the Saviour, can really look outward and see the vision of service'. `As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith'." -- pp. 14-15.

"At the General Synod held in Niagara Falls in January of 1971, the Anglican Church considered ways of expressing some concern about racism throughout the world, and its evil effects upon mankind. South Africa was chosen as a specific focus for this widespread problem .... This resource booklet is an attempt to provide interested church people with additional information on the South African situation today. Much of its is in the words of South Africans. Much of it contains the challenge about racism given to us by the World Council of Churches. All of it can help us to be more realistic about being `the Church in the World'." -- Intro., p. 2.

"A Report made by a special Committee of the Council of the Provincial Synod of Ontario, to which the Canadian Council on Child and Family Welfare acted as technical consultants". -- Cover.
"This bulletin had its origin in an inquiry by Dr. Williams, late Archbishop of Huron. There was not in his mind any lack of confidence in our Church of England girls or serious apprehension on their behalf. A memorandum on this subject prepared by Canon Vernon of the Council for Social Service was considered by the Council of the Provincial Synod in April 1931, and a committee appointed to bring in a report. The report now printed is the outcome of the work of this Committee and of the survey conducted at its request by the Canadian Council on Child and Family Welfare under the guidance of its Executive Director, Miss Charlotte Whitton." -- Origin and Purpose of the Report, p. 2.
"The Committee, in offering their report wish to emphasize the fact that this study was not undertaken because of any aggravated incidence of the problems of incorrigibility, immorality, or others of similar nature within the girl life of the dioceses interested in the survey, but rather from the point of view of ascertaining just exactly what responsibilities in the way of practical service appeared to rest upon the Church in respect to the way of practical service appeared to rest upon the Church in respect to the large body of young girlhood of our Faith in these dioceses, and in what ways the Church might better equip Herself to serve and protect these thousands of young lives on the threshold of womanhood. The inquiry was carried out along two main lines, questionnaires to the clergy and personal conferences at key points in the various dioceses. The inquiry was directed in the first instance towards ascertaining some idea of the number of girls and young women of the Anglican faith, resident within the area of the dioceses; what their normal needs appeared to be, and what problems seemed to call for special service. Though 21 years of age is the age of majority within the Province of Ontario, the survey covered the group from 12 to 25 years of age because so many of the girls' workers felt that many of their problems were concerned with the older group from 21 to 25 years of age". -- p. 6.

"The time has come when we must educate, not the Socialist with a view to converting him, but the masses of the people, whose minds are open to conviction. They do not come to the churches. Then let the churches go to them. Let us organize. Let men study the conditions; let them go to the factory and the street corners; let us with all zeal and sympathy win the masses by a mutual understanding. The classes are strangers, if not enemies, and will continue to be until we make efforts to reach them, and they understand, the broader, the happier possibilities of, not a nominal, but a real Christian Society. .... Bolshevism is a danger in any country, only in so far as the Spirit of Christian fellowship has failed to permeate that country". -- pp. 17, 18.

"Canada needs more population in addition to that supplied through the natural increase, and therefore she needs a more generous policy on immigration. There is a need for a more rapid, steady immigration movement in order to help the population to catch up to the need for the development of our resources, and the need of greater production -- a production which will be beneficial not only to Canada, but to the Commonwealth as an entity in world affairs, and to the world at large. .... Our second proposition is that Canada needs, and we in the Church want, an increased British immigration. We want a more generous policy than the Government has thus far adopted. Why British ? Not for any narrow or self-righteous reasons but sheerly because politically and culturally the British can fit into our Canadian scene easily and can make the kind of contribution to which our destiny has called us -- a democratic, and to some degree, a Christian society: also because the British peoples fit into the industrial, agrarian and climatic set up which we have inherited or created. This is not to the prejudice of other immigration movements. .... Likewise the Church has fought the battles of minority groups -- of the Chinese residents here in Canada, denied the entry of their wives and families, of the Jews and their suffering people in Europe, of the East Indians, and of Negro students and other individuals. There has been no racial discrimination in the Church's approach to the problem of immigration". -- Foreword.

"The Council for Social services convened the first National Consultation of Chairmen and Executive Secretaries of Diocesan Councils for Social Service from February 1-3, 1961 at the Anglican Conference Centre in Aurora. Twenty-two Diocese were represented. .... This Bulletin is in some measure an initial report of that consultation in that it contains the only formal presentation made at the Consultation. But in a very real sense, it is an extension of that experience because the other two contributions to this issue of the Bulletin give many practical suggestions about social service activity within the parish which was one of the major emphasis [sic] at the Aurora Conference." -- Intro.
