That this General Synod
1. Affirm the Development Goal of the United Nations for each developed country to contribute 0.7% of its gross national product to Official Development Assistance (ODA) in developing countries.
2. Request the General Secretary to write to the Government of Canada by June 30, 2004, urging it to act on the 0.7% Development Goal, using the proposal of the Canadian Council of International Cooperation for reaching this goal by 2015:
- To increase foreign aid by 12% annually between 2009 -- an additional $750 million over the next three years to increases already planned
- To increase foreign aid by 15% between 2009-2015.
3. Affirm the challenge of the 1998 Lambeth Conference to dioceses and provinces of the Anglican Communion to provide 0.7% of their own resources to fight global poverty.
4. Request the Primate
- to encourage Anglicans to give their generous support to the PWRDF and Anglican Appeal, which together with the Partnerships budget of General Synod, represent the Anglican Church of Canada's financial commitment to supporting international development programs, fighting poverty, and strengthening international and intra-Anglican partnerships.
- to report to the Anglican Communion by August 31, 2004, through the Task Team on Poverty and Trade, on the Anglican Church of Canada's contributions to development and poverty work to help give a complete picture of the Anglican Communion's efforts to achieve Millennium Development Goals.

Ms. Mason, who is retiring after 40 years of service to the Pension Plan, extended best wishes to Council and acknowledged that she will miss everyone. She has no doubts that the right choice was made when Council appointed Ms. Judy Robinson to be her successor.

Prologue
Bishop Valentine noted that, in preparing the Agenda, the Task Force had given careful consideration to correspondence, items to be brought forward from previous meetings of the House as indicated in past Minutes, and all other concerns which require the attention of the Bishops, of which the Task Force was aware. Bishop Valentine expressed particular appreciation to Archdeacon Light for his assistance in dealing with correspondence and contacting resource people. He noted that the evening sessions were structured to allow for a change of pace and opportunity for involvement on a different level. It was noted that there was one hour allowed for meetings of the Provincial Houses, and recommended that any Houses which require longer periods should make independent arrangements for meetings at some time other than during the meetings of the House of Bishops.

Notes
Bishop Snell outlined the Recommendations in the Report:--
If it is agreed that there is a place in the ministry for "older men" then we should be prepared to undertake their training. A night school plan seems to be the most realistic way of tackling the problem.
It is also desirable to have a common standard for the whole of Canada. Therefore we urge that a competent committee draw up a curriculum based on two years of night school during which eight units of study will be taken. Then the successful candidates shall be required to attend full-time for an additional year, preferably of nine months duration.
Further, that a testing of a man's suitability to undertake the course be given along the lines of C.A.C.T.M. [Central Advisory Council for the Ministry]
That where a night school is not feasible, the same courses shall be taken under the direction of a parish priest acceptable to the Bishop, or under the direction of the staff of the provincial college.
That consideration be given to having one college for each Ecclesiastical Province used for the final year's training.
That special care should be taken in the post-ordination training of such men. That the Pension Committee be consulted. It might be necessary to limit the upper age so that ordination would take place prior to age 50.
