Administrative History
Project North was initiated by national Christian churches in Canada in September 1975 in response to the mega-development projects taking place in northern Canada. The Aboriginal Rights Coalition (ARC) was established as the result of a year long review by the Canadian churches of their aboriginal justice witness after Project North, ARC's predecessor, ended its twelve years (1975-1987) of service. Objectives: ARC works towards the transformation of the relationship between Canadian society and Aboriginal peoples. Through education, research, advocacy and action, this coalition of national churches, faith bodies, and regional groups, works in solidarity with Aboriginal peoples. ARC seeks to embody true partnership by building authentic alliances in the global struggle for Aboriginal justice. Activities: ARC has created and implemented innovative public education and political action campaigns towards: the recognition of Aboriginal land and treaty rights in Canada; realizing the historic rights of Aboriginal peoples as they are recognized in the Canadian constitution and upheld in the courts, including the right to self-determination; reversing the erosion of social rights, including rights to adequate housing, education, health care and appropriate legal systems; seeking reconciliation between Aboriginal peoples, the Christian community and Canadian society; clarifying the moral and spiritual basis for action towards Aboriginal and social justice in Canada; opposing development and military projects that threaten Aboriginal communities and the environment; and promoting Aboriginal justice within Jubilee.
A national assembly is held every two years and regional assemblies in the intervening years. A national office is located in Ottawa with regional offices, staffed by dedicated volunteers, in various parts of Canada.

Administrative History
Isaac O. Stringer (1866-1934) received a B.A., 1891 from University College, Toronto, and B.D. from Wycliffe College in 1892. He was ordained deacon in 1892, priest in 1893 and then stationed at Fort McPherson in Peel River from 1892-1897 as a Church Missionary Society (C.M.S.) missionary. In the summer of 1895, Stringer took a leave of absence for a year, returning to Ontario for deputation work and to marry Sarah Ann Alexander (Sadie), March 10, 1896. After graduation from high school, Sadie studied shorthand and later worked as a secretary in New York City. She received a diploma in nursing from Grace Hospital in Toronto and studied at the Toronto Anglican Women's Training School. After spending a year together at Fort McPherson, the Stringers moved to Herschel Island in the Arctic Ocean and lived there among the Inuit from 1897-1901. Suffering acutely from eyestrain, Stringer took his family back to Ontario in the fall of 1901. In 1903, Bishop Bompas of the Diocese of Selkirk called him to serve as a C.C.C.S. (Colonial and Continental Church Society) missionary at Whitehorse, Yukon. Eventually, Stringer became Bompas' successor in the Diocese which changed its name to Yukon, Dec. 17, 1907, serving until 1931 when he became Archbishop of Rupert's Land. He died suddenly on Oct. 30, 1934 at Winnipeg.

Administrative History
In 1959, The Primate’s World Relief Fund was established by the General Synod, following an emergency response to a mining disaster in Springhill, Nova Scotia in 1958, recognizing the need for an efficient process to channel assistance quickly in situations of emergency. In 1969, the name of the organization was officially changed to The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund which reflected the agency’s maturing program focus and philosophy. PWRDF came to see that much deeper, long-term development needs were strongly connected to most of the suffering caused by natural or human-provoked disasters. Even more significantly, PWRDF realized that people who experienced these problems first-hand were in the best position to develop long-term solutions. The newly renamed Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund moved in the 1970s with a commitment to addressing long-term development needs and to working in partnership with local communities and organizations. During this decade, PWRDF also became more active in public engagement. The Fund recognized the need to engage Canadians in the issues of tackling injustice. The General Synod gave PWRDF the responsibility of coordinating a development education program for the whole Church in order to close the gap between donors and recipients.
In 2001, the PWRDF was separately incorporated from the General Synod and operates under the direction of a Board of Directors. PWRDF remains the Anglican Church of Canada’s agency for sustainable development and relief with the Primate as its patron. With the support of Anglicans across Canada, PWRDF partners with organizations working to increase healthy pregnancies and births, reduce gender inequality, relieve hunger and break the cycle of poverty in the world’s most vulnerable communities. Against a backdrop of climate change, PWRDF strives to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of corporate documents, minutes and meeting files, project files, program files, promotional resources, and financial records.
