Prologue
The Primate updated Council on the search for a new General Secretary. Council was reminded of the process outlined in the Constitution of General Synod, the Search Committee’s membership, and the process the committee undertook. The Most Rev. Linda Nicholls presented the Ven. Alan T. Perry as the nominated candidate and offered details on his background and ministry in the church. Archdeacon Perry is currently the Executive Archdeacon in the Diocese of Edmonton, a position he has held for eight years, and a member of the General Synod Pension Committee. Previously, he has served as a priest in parish ministry in the Diocese of Montreal, and has extensive experience with General Synod and the Provincial Synod of the Ecclesiastical Province of Canada, as well as a passion for justice ministry and ecumenical relationships. Archbishop Nicholls put before Council a motion to ratify Archdeacon Perry as the new General Secretary
Text
That the Council of General Synod appoints the Ven. Alan Perry as General Secretary for the Anglican Church of Canada as of September 1, 2020 as nominated by the Primate and assisted by the Search Committee. ADOPTED #CoGS 002-07-20
Notes
During the vote it was originally noted that there was one vote opposed to the appointment. In seeking clarity about the vote, Archbishop Nicholls confirmed that there were no votes opposed. All those voting were in favour of the resolution. Archbishop Nicholls thanked the Search Committee for their work under what had been very challenging and difficult circumstances, and noted that Church House staff will spend time considering how to orient the new General Secretary the best they can.

Notes
"Percy Coffin, bishop of the diocese of Western Newfoundland, will be installed as metropolitan of the ecclesiastical province of Canada on Sept. 18 [2014]. He succeeds Archbishop Claude Miller. Coffin was elected on the second ballot in an electronic vote by provincial synod members at the end of May [2014]. With his characteristic self-deprecating humour, he told the 'Anglican Journal' that his initial reaction was 'fear and trembling', but then he said more seriously that it was exciting to see how the election was unfolding. 'I'm a fair believer in calling, and when you have that conviction, there's a strength that comes with it in the belief that you are sustained in this by God and also by the people you work with'."

Notes
Concerns raised by Bishop Donald Harvey about the electronic voting system used to elect the Metropolitan of the Ecclesiastical Province of Canada in May 2002 have led to a decision not to use the system in the future. "Bishop Harvey stressed that he had nothing against technology, but that the electronic vote had detracted from the value of the council coming together to elect an archbishop and from a sense that the vote was truly democratic and secret. `Errors may not have taken place', he said, `but errors could have taken place. What we did worked but it was a special situation and now we have the time to change our (canons) to make it unnecessary'."
