"The work of the chaplaincy at Canada's Atlantic ports has now entered upon its fiftieth year of helpful service, the first port chaplain the Rev. T.W. Fyles having been appointed in 1833. It is a work in which the Church of England blazed the way for other communions. .... The transfer in 1920 of the responsibility for, and the supervision of, the chaplaincy work to the Council for Social Service ... had as marked an effect upon the Council itself as upon the work of the chaplaincy service. It led to the formation and development of one of the most useful branches of the Council's work, its Department for the Welcome and Welfare of the Newcomer, which in turn led to the undertaking of very definite and organized work for the welcome and welfare of the newcomer in many dioceses. It led also to the careful study by the Council of the many and complex problems of immigration". -- Intro.

"Specially prepared for members of Summer Schools and other Study Groups in Christian Social Service". -- p. 3.
"This Bulletin has been prepared in the hope that it may be of use primarily to social workers of the Church, whether employed or voluntary -- clergy, layreaders, sisters, deaconesses, parish visitors, members of the W.A., Sunday School workers and others. .... It is written from a definitely Christian outlook by one who believes most firmly in increasing measure that the Church has a social mission, that Personal Religion and Social Work must go hand in hand, that the Church in its social ministry must avail itself of the approved results of modern social service, and that Social Service without a religious background, a religious motive and a religious objective is doomed to ultimate failure. Social Service needs the Church just as truly as the Church must practice Social Service". -- pp. 3-4.

"A Preface by C.W. Vernon, Chairman of the Research Committee of the Social Service Council of Canada". -- p. iii.
"After careful consideration, the Research Committee of the Social Service Council of Canada, established as a result of the action taken by the last Annual Meeting of the Council, decided unanimously that one of the major subjects to which its thought and study should be directed during 1926, should be `Housing in Canada'. .... This will therefore be Number 1 of the Committee's studies on `Housing in Canada'. The Committee respectfully asks the Council's permission to continue its work along these lines next year, when it hopes to deal more fully with remedial measures and, if possible, to set forth the minimum requirements of a healthy home in the way of cubic contents per individual, of ventilation, of light, heating, water, drainage, yard and garden, etc. .... Meanwhile the committee is convinced that there is widespread ignorance on this subject, even among people usually well-informed, and that unsatisfactory housing conditions are not uncommon even in the homes of the reasonably well-to-do". -- Preface.
