Text
That this NEC adopt the following report of the Program Committee on its response to resolutions referred in May 1993:
a) Funding for Telecommunications/Inter-Anglican Information Network (035-09)
Program Committee advises National Executive Council that it has placed a high priority on the development of a coordinated communications strategy, as requested by National Executive Council in March 1992, and does not have financial resources to respond to this resolution.
b) Aboriginal Rights Working Group (035-07) and Task Force to Review Resolutions on Native Issues (055-05)
Program Committee has asked the Partners in Canada Mission Unit to determine if the work requested in the above resolutions can be undertaken by the Aboriginal Rights Network, a project developed by the unit for implementation in 1994.
c) Funding for Master of Divinity Degree (035-08) and Training of Native Ministers (035-10)
In response to the referral of the above two resolutions, Program Committee advises National Executive Council as follows:
In Canada, unlike other parts of the Anglican Communion, theological colleges are institutions independent of the national structure of the Church. Traditionally, funding support has not been through grants to these institutions but through bursary assistance to their students. In 1992, because of budget restraint, national church bursary assistance was ended except for the disbursal of a small amount of income from legacies designated for this purpose. Sixty-five percent of this income is available to the Council of the North for bursaries for students from Council of the North dioceses. Thirty-five percent is available for graduate awards to students who are in advanced programs with the intention of teaching in Canadian theological colleges upon graduation.
Program Committee believes that a change from this pattern, as called for in the two resolutions, needs debate and decision by either the General Synod or the National Executive Council to direct the action of the Program Committee. Program Committee has not initiated the consultation with Council for Native Ministries and the Committee on Ministry, as requested by National Executive Council, but will do so if National Executive Council wishes to pursue the matter further. National Executive Council may wish to consider the larger questions of the relationship with theological colleges and the funding of theological education in its strategic planning.
d) Residential Schools Funding (032-05)
After consulting with the Treasurer and following his advice, the Program Committee suggests that the budget for Residential Schools Working Group and the Special Assistant(s) to the Primate on Residential Schools, should come from the Apportionment Budget from January to June 30, 1994; and Assessment Budget, July 1, 1994 to June 1, 1995.
e) General Synod Mission Statement (16-05-93)
Program Committee has asked its Chair's Advisory Committee to provide a process and time on its March 1994 agenda to address the Mission Statement, with particular attention to paragraph 3. CARRIED #48-11-93

That the NEC encourage our church to work ecumenically to address residential school issues by endorsing the principles and work of the Aboriginal Rights Coalition as expressed in its "Statement on Residential Schools". CARRIED #51-05-91
Notes
The Principles are:
1. Aboriginal people must name how the issue needs to be described/defined.
2. Aboriginal people must decide what a useful/appropriate response from the Church would be. They should give direction to the response.
3. A pastoral response must be made thoughtfully, yet quickly. This process must not be delayed by waiting for federal action, nor should it be dominated by legal concerns.
4. Support healing processes that arise from the Aboriginal community. This would include financial resources.
5. Thought must be given to what the ecumenical church would recommend to the Government regarding the Government response and responsibility.
6. Use the experience and learning coming out of the Newfoundland experience. People such as Nancy White in Newfoundland could be a resource.
