Definite Policy of Immigration for
Canadian National Railways
WHEN, a little more than a
year ago, Sir Henry W.
Thornton, K. B. E., was
chosen to head the Canadian National Railways,
one of his first
acts was to put
into motion machinery for aiding in the colonization and development of Canada, particularly
along the lines of
the National System. He realized
that one of the
crying needs of
Canada was for
more population
and he has since
been quoted, on
several occasions
as saying that if
Canada had a
population of
twenty-five mil-
Ion people, Canada would havi
no railway problem.
The    organization of a  depart
Dr. Black is a man who is thoroughly   respected,    both    for   his
opinions   and    his    achievements,
throughout Canada.    He carries a
..      lasting  and   genuine    enthusiasm
| into his work, and
I as a quiet but elo-
| quent    and    con-
| vincing     speaker
'������ lie  is  well   fitted
| to  broadcast   tbe
message    of    his
important      mission.
The Policy.
There are seven
points to the programme   which
has   received   the
approval    of   Sir
Henry W. Thornton, and the principle:*    of    policy
will be placed into
effect    i in mc J ���
ately.   Dr. Black
sailed    for    Eng-
and    again    on
January 5th, an 1
on his  arrival  in
Lou Ion    his    .i ���-
ment to look after colonization and  partn   nt   commenced    to function

r. VV. .1. Black
President, and Mr. Robb at once
proceeded to build up the necessary
organization to look after this most
important national work. Investigations, conferences and careful
planning gradually brought Into
being an effective department, the
effort of the year culminating in
the engagement of Dr. W. J. Black.
Deputy Minister of Immigration
and Colonization >n tbe Federal
Government, as Manager of the
Colonization and Development Department of the Canadian National
Railways, with headquarters in
London. England That was eariv
in the Fall of 1023. Dr. Black proceeded at ont-o to Great Britain,
where he spent some weeks carrying out a series of investigations
These completed, he returned to
Canada and a general conference
of all officers of th" d ipartment
was called and a dc';r.;t" plan of
colonization and development was
drawn un and announced. This
was the first definite announcement
on immigration to be announced
in Canada.
Dr. Black's Career
In . ngaging Dr. Black, the Canadian   Nation:.1   Railways    secured
an  officer  who is  probably  better
acquainted   with   the   immigration
needs of Canada,    and     the    besl
methods of remedying 'hose needs,
th.in any other man  in the .���-
try.    All  his life he has  been .
nected  with  the agricultural    n-
dustry and has run the gauntlu of
all  its  intricate  phases.       I!
born and brought un on a farm in
Dufferin    County. Ontario, and   in
1902 graduated   from   the Ontario
Agricultural    College    with a   i'>-
ronto  University degree.    At his
graduation   be  was  appointed   editor of    the "Farmers' Advocate,"
Winnipeg, Manitoba,   and   he held
this  post   Tor two  years.     In   190B
he joined the Government of Manitoba as Deputy Minister ot'   7
culture,   a   post   which   he   lei
follow ing yeai to became Pri
of the Manitoba Agricultural College.    He remained in this Important position until V.i\i\, wh. n be be-
