Joseph Henry Harris

Mr. Harris:

The following answer is made on the presumption that "bringing" refers to sponsoring rather than carrying of immigrants.

1. No organizations are actually bringing immigrants to Canada; from time to time various organizations such as the Canadian Christian council for the resettlement of refugees, the Canadian council of churches, the rural settlement society of Canada, the Canadian Jewish congress, the association of Polish engineers in Canada, the international

rescue committee, and the colonization departments of the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways have sponsored the admission of immigrants into Canada.

2. These statistics have not been maintained.
