"Bishop Gregory Kerr-Wilson of the diocese of Qu'Appelle has been elected the new bishop for the diocese of Calgary. He will be installed Sept. 29  at Calgary's Cathedral Church of the Redeemer, and succeeds Bishop Derek Hoskin, who has retired. The election took place June 15  at St. Peter's Anglican Church in Calgary. In all, five candidates were considered for the position. Bishop Kerr-Wilson describes himself as an 'evangelical, charismatic Catholic with liberal and conservative tendencies'. He is focused on local leadership 'rather than simply thinking about survival', he says. 'The church's capital is its people and their faith'." [Text of entire article.]
The Anglican diocese of Calgary, the Roman Catholic diocese of Calgary, and the Alberta Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, have formed a task force to develop a covenant between the three churches.
Canon John Erb visited the civil province of Alberta for eleven days in October 2001. He attended the Diocese of Athabasca synod meeting, held in Fort McMurray, before travelling to the dioceses of Edmonton and Calgary. Along the way he visited a number of parishes and presented plaques to those which had received Anglican Foundation funding.
"The synod of the diocese of Calgary has asked the diocesan bishop to allow the blessing of same-sex union". The 14 October 2017 motion "passed with 57.4 % of votes. Archbishop Gregory Kerr-Wilson, diocesan bishop of Calgary and metropolitan of the ecclesiastical province of Rupert's Land, confirmed October 20". "As of press time, Kerr-Wilson has said he expected to announce his decision on the request in mid-November". Both Kerr-Wilson and the Rev. Brian Pearson of St. Stephen's Anglican Church in Calgary, who supported the motion, "say that despite high levels of anxiety and tension around the issue, the debate in synod was respectful". "Pearson was among a number of clergy in the diocese who received a warning from the bishop after jointly blessing the civil marriage of a non-heterosexual couple (a woman and her transgendered partner) last year".
