For the first time ever in Canada, the National Inter-Faith Immigration Committee has decided to sponsor and bring in refugees. This supportive integration being done by an ecumenical group, will be discussed at their fourth annual meeting to be held at the Baptist Church House, 217 St. George Street, Toronto, on Thursday, January 21st, 1971, from 9:30am to 3:00pm.
The morning session will be taken up with reports and projected program. Lunch at one o'clock will be followed by an address by the Deputy Minister of Citizenship in the Ontario Government, Mr. R.M. Warren, and a question period.
The National Inter-Faith Immigration Committee is a voluntary co-operative program among 19 churches and the Jewish Synagogues across Canada. The program normally includes various ways of expressing welcome to immigrants on their arrival in Canada, but the projected sponsorship of refugees places a completely new emphasis on its work.
