Mr. Yves Forest (Parliamentary Secretary to President of the Privy Council):

I am informed by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics,

the Departments of National Revenue and National Health and Welfare as follows: 1. According to the 1961 Census of Canada, there were 11 Hutterite colonies (771 individuals) in Saskatchewan and 61 Hutterite colonies (5,370 individuals) in Alberta.

2. Hutterite Colonies, whether incorporated or unincorporated, are not taxable entities as they do not receive income on their own account. However, each member of a Colony must include in his income, for purposes of the Income Tax Act, his share of the profit attributable to the farming or other business activities carried on by the Colony of which he is a member. A statement on this subject was tabled in the House on November 6, 1968, but was incorrectly referred to on page 2469 of Hansard for that day as a statement on Disciples of Luther.

3. and 4. This information is not available.
