Prologue
This report was presented by the Archbishop of Kootenay. Considerable discussion arose out of the report which was, on motion of the Archbishop of Kootenay, seconded by Mr. R.W. Allin, carried in both Houses.
Your Committee regrets that it cannot submit any report either on the "state" of the Church or on statistical returns. The information supplied is insufficient in both cases. Only nine bishops have replied to a request for a Church report of conditions in their areas; for the year 1944 statistical returns were not received until this year, and the figures of two important dioceses are still unavailable; less than half the returns for 1945 have been received.
Your Committee requests that it be relieved of its duties unless fuller cooperation is forthcoming and needful information supplied. It would however stress the great loss which the Church would suffer, if information as to the ebb and flow of Church life in various parts of the Dominion is not available. It may point out that the proportion of active to missing Anglicans would never have been known if statistics had not been collected and synthesized.
Text
That this Synod requests the Committee on Statistics and State of the Church to continue its labours and calls upon all Dioceses to extend to the Committee the fullest co-operation so that all needful information may be supplied. CARRIED in both Houses.

Text
That this General Synod is of the opinion
1. That the Canadian Government should be ready to:
(a) Accept the present standing offer of the British Government to assume 75 percent of the cost for the selection, transportation and settlement of their emigrants, provided the Dominion (and other Commonwealth) Government assume 25 percent.
(b) Establish after the war a bureau of Canadian representatives of the highest educational and cultural standards in Britain to present our case to the British Peoples.
2. That the Church's interest and desires in this may better be promoted by intergroup consultations and action, than by any one society or Church, and that therefore, with the co-operation of other interested societies (e.g. those at present in the C.S.C.C.), an Inter-Group Standing Committee be established to,
(a) Watch British and European developments;
(b) Bring pressure on the Federal Government to, (i) promote immigration and (ii) to establish an adequate quota of British immigration;
(c) Educate all classes of Canadian public opinion concerning the need for immigration with special reference to British immigration.
3. That so far as Churches are concerned their best effort may be made in assisting the Government in the selection, interim care, and placement of immigrants rather than by themselves bringing out groups of immigrants.
4. That the Churches develop a close contact with parent Churches in Britain in order to develop mutual action in this regard.
CARRIED in both Houses.
