1. That General Synod, firmly of the opinion that a continued generous policy of Immigration is both wise and necessary, respectfully requests the Federal Government to strengthen the appeal to prospective settlers by instituting more adequate planning in respect of the reception accorded them at ports of entry, their absorption in industry and their earlier eligibility for our social insurances and services.
2. In addition, the Synod recommends that specific measures of assistance be extended to help meet the passage and settlement costs of settlers here from the United Kingdom in line with arrangements offered to Commonwealth countries by the British Government.
3. Further, as an acknowledgement of their British citizenship and as an aid to the economy of the British West Indies, the Synod urges that a greater number of their population be encouraged and permitted to settle in Canada.
4. The Synod is constrained to draw attention to the deplorable plight of many refugees and displaced persons and would impress upon congregations and parish organizations the need for sponsoring groups for the care of such refugees, either through the World Council of Churches or otherwise. CARRIED in both Houses.
