That this General Synod enact Canon XXIII and consequential amendments to the Constitution, Canon III, and the Handbook as follows: CANON XXIII THE BISHOP ORDINARY TO THE CANADIAN FORCES The purpose of this Canon is to make provision for the election of the Bishop Ordinary to the Canadian Forces. 1. The Bishop Ordinary The Bishop Ordinary has an episcopal relationship with all ordained and lay members of the Anglican Military Ordinariate. The Bishop Ordinary is a member of the House of Bishops and General Synod. 2. Eligibility for being elected as the Bishop Ordinary A person is eligible for election as the Bishop Ordinary if that person (a) is of the full age of thirty years and less than seventy years of age; (b) is a priest or bishop in Holy Orders of The Anglican Church of Canada, or of a church in full communion therewith; (c) is faithful in the doctrines and discipline of The Anglican Church of Canada as determined and defined by the official formularies of that church; (d) is known and recognized as being a person of integrity and moral stature; (e) has those qualities and abilities of leadership, experience and learning that will enable that person to fulfil the duties of a chief pastor in the Church of God; and (f) acknowledges that the Bishop Ordinary must achieve and maintain the citizenship, language, security clearance and other requirements of the Canadian Forces which affect the work of the Bishop Ordinary (see the Explanatory Notes below). 3. The Search Committee When a vacancy occurs (or is about to occur) in the office of Bishop Ordinary, and the Primate is satisfied that there is adequate financial provision for the office to be filled, the Bishop’s Council of the Anglican Military Ordinariate will create a Search Committee (see section 8 below) to: (a) determine any specific qualities or additional qualifications that might be required or desirable with respect to the person elected to fill the vacancy; (b) identify potential candidates and determine whether they are willing to stand for election; (c) prepare for the Electoral College a short list of electoral candidates; (d) assemble for the Electoral College relevant background material, references, and other information concerning the electoral candidates on the short list; and (e) generally do all things necessary to organize the election process. 4. The Electoral College The Electoral College (see section 9 below) will elect a person from the list of electoral candidates submitted by the Search Committee, and will send the name of the Bishop Ordinaryelect to the Primate for concurrence by the Primate and the four Provincial Metropolitans. 5. Concurrence, Consecration and Installation Following concurrence by the Primate and the four Provincial Metropolitans, the Primate will consecrate the Bishop Ordinary-elect (if not already a bishop) and install the Bishop Ordinary in office. 6. Retirement of the Bishop Ordinary The Bishop Ordinary must retire on reaching the age of 70. 7. Vacancy in the Office of the Bishop Ordinary If the Bishop Ordinary dies, resigns, retires, or for any other reason the office of the Bishop Ordinary is vacant, or the Primate determines that the Bishop Ordinary is unable to act because of absence, illness or any other reason, the Primate in consultation with the four Provincial Metropolitans and the Bishop’s Council may designate a bishop in The Anglican Church of Canada willing to undertake the task as the Acting Bishop Ordinary. 8. The Search Committee The Anglican Military Ordinariate shall enact an Ordinariate canon with respect to the composition and work of the Search Committee. The Ordinariate canon about the Search Committee: (a) must provide for at least two lay members of the Search Committee; (b) may provide that some or all of the work of the Search Committee may be done by electronic means; and (c) shall not come into force or be amended without prior written approval by the Primate. 9. The Electoral College The Anglican Military Ordinariate shall enact an Ordinariate canon with respect to the composition and procedures to be used by the Electoral College. The Ordinariate canon about the Electoral College: (a) must provide for the Electoral College to include a house of laity as well as a house of clergy, and that the election of a Bishop Ordinary must be concurred in by a majority of each of these two houses; (b) may provide that some or all of the proceedings of the Electoral College (including voting) may be done by electronic means; and (c) shall not come into effect or be amended without prior written approval by the Primate.
