At the outset of the hear-
ings, Charness explained
that the ZOC decided to es-
tablish the committee fol-
lowing its 41st annual con-
vention in Jerusalem last
year during which many
Canadian olim asked for
help from Canadian Jewry
in overcoming their prob-
lems here. He said the in-
quiry was also prompted by
a statistical survey which
showed that 40 percent of
Canadian olim returned to
Canada within five years of
their arrival in Israel.

complained of low living
standards, a poor quality of
life in Israel and difficulties

Others were satisfied with
the educational facilities.
