"After producing a joint church calendar with the United Church of Canada for more than 40 years, the Anglican Church of Canada has decided to go it alone. Work is underway to produce the 2010 Canadian Church Calendar which will feature Anglican-only photographs of church settings across Canada. .... The calendar is more than a century old, with the first edition being published in 1905 by the Missionary Society of the Church of England. The early versions depicted the work of missionaries and also provided information on the church year. In 1964, the missionary society selected 'Canadian Churchman', forerunner of the 'Anglican Journal', to take over the calendar. It was first promoted and sold across Canada through the Woman's Auxiliary and later through Anglican Church Women. The decision to produce an Anglican-specific calendar was endorsed by the 'Anglican Journal' board. Larry Gee, advertising business and financial manager of the 'Anglican Journal', says that 'the newspaper's share of proceeds from the sale of the Canadian Church Calendar represents approximately 10 per cent of its total revenue'."

"The Anglican Journal's 2008 fundraising appeal raised $5661,347, the third highest amount since the paper sought donations from its readers in 1994." "The Journal, which has a circulation of 180,000, is partly funded by a grant from the General Synod. As a result of the $150,000 reduction in General Synod's grant for 2009, the Journal has had to reduce the newspaper to a 12-page base, 'because we can't afford to produce it,' said Mr. Gee. He said the 2008 results show that Canadian Anglicans continue to support the 'Journal' and the diocesan newspapers".
