Memorial from the Brotherhood of St. Andrew
To the General Synod of the Church of England in Canada:
This Dominion Convention assembled in Winnipeg respectfully suggests that:
Whereas at the present time no well defined attempt is made by the Church to link up closely the passing on of Anglican settlers from the Old Land to the West with those points where Anglican associations and privileges are accessible.
It is desirable to operate for the above purpose through our own Council for Social Service and any allied agencies, a Central Bureau in the Church House, Westminster, London, in direct communication with another similar Bureau in Winnipeg.
NOTE - If we are to have happy and satisfied settlers in Canada, there must be better advice and guidance given to the Immigrant whilst still in the Old Land. There is a great need of increased interest and co-operation in the building up of a strong, broad, definite, Colonization policy, that would not only hold Anglicans for the Church; but through proper environment establish them as God fearing, loyal, industrious citizens of our Great Dominion.
Resolved, That the Report be referred to the Executive Committee of the Council for Social Service.
