Notes
The author, Coordinator for Mission and Justice Education, in the Partnerships Dept. outlines the history of Canadian coalitions in general with some detail about individual ones such as: Ten Days for Global Justice; Inter-Church Committee on Refugees; Inter-Church Action for Development, Relief and Justice; the Canada China Programme; PLURA; Ecumenical Coalition on Economic Justice and the Aboriginal Rights Coalition. "An inter-church body, the Coalition Priorities and Administration Committee (C-PAC) has been formed to monitor and consolidate links with the coalitions. The Anglican Church is re-examining its relationship with the coalitions. In 1993, a task force was commissioned to recommend Anglican priorities and funding for social justice work. In a report presented to the Council of General Synod (COGS) in February 1996, the task force recommended new priorities, improved connections with staff and volunteers, and new structures for oversight. It called for more accessible information about the coalitions' work and asked the Mission Coordination Group to provide support and consultation".
Inset paragraph has listing of the "official core group of coalitions" with their full names and acronyms.

That this General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada
1. Recognize the substantial progress made in restructuring the Canadian ecumenical justice coalition and November 2000 Council of General Synod resolution approving participation of the Anglican Church of Canada in the newly established Canadian Churches for Justice and Peace (CCJP),
2. Affirm the courage and vision demonstrated to date by the member churches, Church House staff, particularly the Board members, namely the Executive Director of the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) and the Director of Partnerships, and coalition staff of the CCJP,
3. Acknowledge the constraints on resources necessitating a regrettable reduction in ecumenical coalition staff and the resulting associated pain and anxiety; and,
4. Support efforts of all CCJP members to strive for and celebrate the excellence of collaborative Christian ecumenical international and Canadian social justice work, CARRIED WITHOUT DEBATE Act 69

Notes
Church and coalition representatives soundly rejected proposals to restructure ecumenical coalition work in the face of serious financial difficulties. The restructuring proposals, in the report Empowered for the Future, were turned down by delegates at a two-day consultation hosted by the justice and peace commission of the Canadian Council of Churches.

Includes bibliographic endnotes.
"This book is both a record and a reflection on an extraordinary period in the life of the Canadian churches. .... In response to the spirit of renewal that followed from the Second Vatican Council, Roman Catholics in Canada were reaching out to experiment with new ecumenical relationships. While formal links through the Canadian Council of Churches seemed a long way off, Protestants were pushed by this surge of Catholic energy to build new models for peace and justice work. These became known as the interchurch coalitions, which the Protestant churches experienced as an opportunity to discover their own Social Gospel tradition (p. [5]). .... In this book we have asked the coalitions to tell their own story. Though the story may have a single person's name attached to it, it has been authorized by the coalition and circulated and revised by many people associated with the coalition's work. This was done to ensure the telling of a collective story rather than an individual one. These stories form Part One. .... We asked the writers of Part Two to read all of the stories and identify themes that emerged from the stories themselves. (p. 7) .... Another group of people [authors of Part Two], committed to supporting this justice work of the churches, has reflected on the strengths and weaknesses, similarities and differences among the stories. They have found much to praise, but also much to challenge (p. 8)". -- Intro.
