I notice in your “Daily Bulletin” of Wednesday, February 27th, a dispatch dated Toronto, relative to the conference which was held in Ottawa pertaining to Jewish immigration to Canada.

I regret to state that the information therein contained is not correct, in that the Government is unwilling to specify any annual quota, and gave only meagre encouragement that there would be any numerical increase in the number of Jews admitted to Canada, above the present figure which, for the past few years, has ranged around four thousand (4,000). This consists almost entirely of dependents and single brothers and sisters. These are the only persons admissable at present under the regulations now in force.

Yours sincerely,


President, Jewish Immigrant Aid of Ontario.
