Prologue
The Rev. Norman Casey, ACIP Co-Chair, welcomed members to a session in which they experienced meeting in a Sacred Circle. The session began a prayer and scripture reading by Mr. Peter Kitchekesik.
Bishop Mark McDonald presented the ACIP report. He spoke of the deepening crises and urgent needs in Indigenous communities both on and off reserve; the pressing issues of governance, sovereign identity and pastoral care. These crises and growing frustration led ACIP to write "The Mississauga Declaration", an urgent cry for self-determination and a call to the church. Bishop McDonald emphasized that a practical accommodation to the culture and boundaries of Indigenous life within the structures of the church is sought. He outlined an aggressive timeline that would see a comprehensive plan presented to COGS and the House of Bishops in the Spring and to the Sacred Circle in August 2012. Members then offered their reflections on what they had heard. The session closed with prayer.
Following the lunch break, the Prolocutor Canon Robert Falby assumed the chair.
The Primate acknowledged ACIP's moving presentation and suggested that COGS respond with a formal resolution. It was
Text
That the Council of General Synod in a spirit of great respect and hope receives The Mississauga Declaration as a gracious invitation and urgent call to the whole church to renewed commitment in walking and working with Indigenous Peoples in addressing the many crises in their communities, in strengthening pastoral ministries, in supporting their desires for self determination, and in re-affirming their sovereignty as People of the Land.
ADOPTED #09-11-11
Notes
The text of the Mississauga Declaration is attached as Appendix D.
APPENDIX D
THE MISSISSAUGA DECLARATION
Gathered in a sacred circle of love, prayer, and hope, we placed the Gospel in the centre and listened to hear God’s voice. Seventeen years after The Covenant, our communities are still in crisis and we are convinced that we must act in defense of the people and the Land. Though gathered as a consultation on governance, we have realized that our task is more urgent and more extensive. We affirm that God has a plan for us in the Gospel and that we must claim the freedom to become what God has called us to be. We believe that we must act now to reaffirm our sovereign identity as the people of the Land and to revive, renew and reclaim the ministries in our communities. Empowered in faith, we will live and work to overcome the crisis that brings overwhelming death to the peoples of this land.
We need to explore the possibilities and potential as spelled out in the Indigenous Covenant Implementation Commission’s work that would develop structures of authority, ministries and jurisdiction up to and including the development of a fifth province.
Our collective experience over decades of struggle of reconciling the historical wrongs and now the impact of assimilation upon our Elders, our children and grandchildren tells us that realistic answers come from our ways of living upon the Land and from our relationship we have always had with God, through Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit. We are called by our Elders to take responsibility to practice and express our way of life so our children and their children can live as the people of the Land, your neighbors, friends and partners of our Church.
We know God is calling our peoples through our Elders’ Vision to renewal and restoration. With respect for our various traditional ways of living we hear God’s call to our peoples to unite as the renewed and restored peoples upon the Land. We will begin, today, to live towards a vision of ministry to Indigenous peoples throughout our native lands, many of us know as Turtle Island. We commit to plan and pray towards a full expression of God’s truth and love among the People of the Land. We call upon our partners in the Anglican Church and beyond to join us in the fulfillment of this calling.

Seconder
The Ven. Sidney Black
Prologue
The Chancellor, David Jones, advised that at the 2009 meeting of the Sacred Circle, the Governance Working Group asked ACIP the following questions:
- 1. How will future members of ACIP be selected?
- 2. How will future members in the Sacred Circle be selected?
- 3. How will the next NIAB be selected?
In accordance with the principle of self-determination, it was recognized that the answers to these questions must come from the Indigenous members of our Church and, after extensive consultations during the present triennium, the 2012 meeting of the Sacred Circle unanimously confirmed how these selections will be made in the future. Accordingly, the GWG [Governance Working Group] is proposing to COGS that Canon XXII be amended.
Text
That the Council of General Synod forward amended Canon XXII to General Synod.
ADOPTED #06-03-13
Notes
The text of amended Canon XXII reads:
Be it resolved that this General Synod amend Canon XXII to read as follows:
CANON XXII
THE NATIONAL INDIGENOUS MINISTRY
The origin of this Canon is the Covenant made by the participants at the 1994 Journey of Spiritual Renewal sponsored by the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples:
“...We acknowledge that God is calling us to a prayerful dialogue towards self-determination for us, the Indigenous Peoples, within the Anglican Communion in Canada. Through this new relationship we can better respond to the challenges facing us in a relevant and meaningful way....
“We, representatives of the Indigenous people of the Anglican Church of Canada, meeting in Winnipeg from the 23 to 26 April 1994, pledge ourselves to this covenant for the sake of our people and in trust of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ:
“Under the guidance of God’s spirit we agree to do all that we can to call our people into unity in a new, self-determining community within the Anglican Church of Canada.
“To this end we extend the hand of partnership to all those who will help us build a truly Anglican Indigenous Church in Canada.
“May God bless this vision and give us grace to accomplish it.”
The purpose of this Canon is to provide canonical recognition of structures through which the National Indigenous Ministry may be a self-determining community within the Anglican Church of Canada.
1. The National Indigenous Anglican Bishop
The National Indigenous Anglican Bishop (NIAB) has a pastoral episcopal relationship with all indigenous ministries in the Anglican Church of Canada. This role is exercised in partnership with diocesan bishops.
The NIAB is a member of the Sacred Circle, the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples, the House of Bishops, General Synod and the Council of the North.
Selection Process for the NIAB
A person is eligible for selection as the NIAB if that person
(a) is of the full age of thirty years;
(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; and
(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.
When a vacancy occurs (or is about to occur) in the office of NIAB, ACIP will create a search committee (which must include an elder) to determine the specific qualities and additional qualifications that might be required or desirable with respect to the person to fill the vacancy; identify potential candidates; assemble information from the persons who are prepared to become candidates; and prepare a short list of candidates for ACIP.
ACIP will elect a person from the short list submitted by the selection committee, and will send the name of the NIAB-elect to the Primate for concurrence by the Primate and the four Provincial Metropolitans.
Following concurrence, the Primate will consecrate the NIAB-elect (if not already a bishop) and install the NIAB in office.
At the first opportunity following the NIAB’s installation in office, the Sacred Circle will receive the NIAB as its presiding elder.
Term of Office for the NIAB
The term of office for the NIAB is nine years from the date of installation. The NIAB whose term has been completed is eligible to stand for election for a further term.
The NIAB must retire on reaching the age of 70.
Vacancy in the Office of the NIAB
If the NIAB dies, resigns, retires, or for any other reason the office of the NIAB is vacant, or the NIAB is unable to act by reason of absence or illness, the Primate in consultation with the chair or co-chairs of ACIP will designate the senior indigenous bishop in The Anglican Church of Canada willing to undertake the task as the Acting NIAB.
2. The Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples
The Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples (ACIP) consists of representatives from dioceses where significant Indigenous ministry is taking place, the National Indigenous Anglican Bishop (who is the ACIP liaison with the Council of the North and the House of Bishops), and additional members as determined by ACIP.
The members of ACIP must be aboriginal, members of The Anglican Church of Canada, and active in their parish or diocese.
ACIP will consist of the following persons:
(a) The NIAB.
(b) Two persons elected by each Provincial Caucus at the Sacred Circle.
(c) One youth, one elder and one member-at-large appointed by the NIAB.
Except for the NIAB, the terms of ACIP members will end at the conclusion of the next Sacred Circle. Where a vacancy occurs on the Council between Sacred Circles, ACIP may appoint a replacement for a person who was elected by the Sacred Circle, and the NIAB may appoint a replacement for a person whom the NIAB had appointed. A person who has served on ACIP is eligible for re-election.
ACIP will select its chair or co-chairs.
ACIP maintains relationships with the House of Bishops, General Synod, the Council of General Synod, the Council of the North, and the International Anglican Indigenous Network.
ACIP organizes the Sacred Circles.
3. The Sacred Circle
The Sacred Circles have met approximately every three years since 1988.
The Sacred Circles are organized by ACIP.
The Sacred Circle will consist of the following voting members:
(a) Ten indigenous members from each of those dioceses identified by ACIP as having significant indigenous ministries. (More persons from these dioceses may attend the Sacred Circle, and may be granted voice but shall not vote.)
(b) Up to ten indigenous members identified by ACIP to represent urban indigenous ministries.
(c) Up to three indigenous members from the Anglican Military Ordinariate
(d) The indigenous bishops of The Anglican Church of Canada, as identified by ACIP.
(e) The NIAB, who is the presiding elder at its meetings.
The Primate is always an invited guest at the Sacred Circle, and has voice but not vote.
Invitations are also generally sent to the bishops from the Council of the North dioceses and the diocese in which the Sacred Circle is being held (if not otherwise included). In addition, ACIP may invite up to twelve partners to attend the Sacred Circle. These invited persons may be granted voice but shall not vote.
The date and location of the meeting of the Sacred Circle are determined by ACIP. The Sacred Circle performs many of the functions of a “Synod” for the indigenous ministries: it provides an opportunity for representatives of the indigenous communities to come together to worship, to discuss, and to communicate with the broader Church.
4. Organization of Indigenous Ministries
Developments in the organization of the indigenous ministries will take place over time, and can be accommodated by changes to the existing constitutional and canonical structures.
Dr. Randall Fairey was applauded for his work on Canon XXII.
