TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION (TRC) #025-12-13-03 : Document Collection
Archdeacon Thompson welcomed Ms. Nancy Hurn, General Synod Archivist, and Archdeacon Jim Boyles. He spoke about the digitizing of archival documents for TRC, whose mandate it is to gather relevant archival material from all parties involved with the operations of residential schools (including General Synod). This work has commenced but TRC lacks adequate resources to complete it. Archdeacon Thompson advised that money is available in the unrestricted surplus of the Missionary Society of the Anglican Church of Canada. He also emphasized that this work and expenditure is a response to a request from the TRC to the Parties to the Settlement Agreement.
Archdeacon Thompson requested COGS to consider contributing a portion of the reserve funds from the Missionary Society of the Anglican Church of Canada (MSCC) for this work. He thanked Ms. Hurn for her leadership and advocacy and Archdeacon Boyles for volunteering his time to assist with assembly of the documents. [Applause]

Resolved, That the report of the Committee on Records (23) as follows be received.
(Journal 1921, Page 85.)
Your Sub-Committee on Records desires to report as follows:
1. After consultation with the Registrar of the General Synod on the Subject of the preservation of the Records of the General Synod, your Committee finds that copies of the Journal and Convening Circulars of the Synod have been placed in the Dominion Archives for safe keeping, where they are properly cared for and indexed, and where those interested naturally go for information.
2. Your Committee finds that the Provincial and Diocesan Synods preserve their own Records, and would recommend to the proper authorities of the Synods that they also be placed in the Dominion Archives for safe keeping.
3. To preserve Church Historical matter other than the items mentioned in Clauses 1 and 2, would involve expense and labour neither of which does your Committee know at the present time to be available for the purpose. Some one capable of such work would have to travel about our large country under heavy expense for travelling and hotels, to collect information and documents, and then there would be the further expense of storing and printing the list of the same, to say nothing of stationery, cost of copying, etc.
Moreover, whoever would be given this work to do would have to be a man of experience; to place it in the hands of an inexperienced person would be a waste of money. Under all the circumstances, therefore, your Sub-Committee cannot recommend that further action be taken.
Note - The Registrar of the General Synod keeps his Records in the vault of the Royal Trust Company, Ottawa.
All of which is respectfully submitted. James Toronto, John Fredericton, Charles L. Ingles.

Resolved, That the Upper House concurring the Report of the Registrar be adopted; the Registrar to add a statement that he has received the sealed copy of the Book of Common Prayer.
Report of the Registrar
To the General Synod of the Church of England in Canada
The Undersigned has the honour to report that since the last session of the General Synod three Bishops of the Canadian Church have been consecrated:
On December 11, 1921, the Venerable Alfred Daniel Alexander Dewdney to be Bishop of Keewatin;
On March 12th, 1922, the Reverend George Exton Lloyd to be Bishop of Saskatchewan; and
On September 7th, 1924, the Venerable Wilfred William Henry Thomas to be Bishop of Brandon.
Certificates of these consecrations were duly forwarded to me by direction of the Primate.
I have received from the Primate a copy of a certified copy of the report of a committee on the conference held in 1890 for the creation of the General Synod and of the resolutions adopted by the committee and also a very interesting document being a copy of the minutes of a conference of the Bishops of Quebec, Toronto, Newfoundland, Fredericton and Montreal held at Quebec from 23rd September to 1st October, 1851. (The then Bishop of Nova Scotia had only been consecrated on 2nd February, 1851.) It contains the resolutions passed at the conference under the following headings: General Declaration, Convocation, Church Membership, Canons, Articles and Formularies, Division of Services, Psalms and Hymns, Offertory, Holy Communion, Marriages, Registers, Intercommunion with Reformed Churches, Education, Deacons, and Maintenance of Clergy.
This conference followed an informal Synod, at which 124 Clergymen and 127 laymen were present, which had been held by the Bishop of Toronto in the same year, the first Synod held by any colonial Church. As a result of this conference the Church in Canada, the Maritime Provinces and Newfoundland adopted Synodical government based upon the practice of the sister Church in the United States, a movement that has now extended to all colonial Churches and has produced our Provincial and General Synods.
The intercommunion with reformed churches has only reference to intercommunion with the Episcopal Church in the United States and the other sister Churches of our Communion. It is interesting to note that the Bishops point out the need for a common Hymn book.
The Executive Council appointed a committee to consider the question of preserving the records and other historical matter relating to the Church of England in Canada: The undersigned would in that connection point out the valuable historical matter contained in the Year Book and would suggest that a copy of each issue of the Year Book be deposited with the Registrar. He would also again draw attention to his recommendation that sets of the various Diocesan and Provincial Synod Journals be deposited in the public archives at Ottawa where they would be carefully preserved and easy of access.
The Registrar would venture to call attention to the want of uniformity in the wording of the formal parts of the Canons and more particularly of amending Canons enacted by the General Synod and would suggest that a proper form in keeping with the importance and dignity of the General Synod be prescribed.
Since the last report all the records have been moved from the office lately occupied by the Registrar and are now kept in a fireproof vault in the Royal Trust Company's Building at Ottawa.
Under the legislation of last Session the seal of the Synod has been sent to the Hon. Treasurer and is now in his custody.
(Sgd.) Francis H. Gisborne, Registrar.
