Prologue
1. From Canon A.H. Davis (M.S.C.C.) requesting advice form the House of Bishops to M.S.C.C. and W.A. on the status of Canadian Missionary personnel if the Anglican Communion were not in Communion wth the proposed Church of North India.
The House gave consideration to a document on Partnership with United Churches which had been adopted in Huron in August by the Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy.
Text
"That we refer the Document on Partnership to the Executive Council asking for general approval in principle, and that a Committee of Executive Council be appointed to consider details and report."
Notes
The Document is printed below:
PARTNERSHIP WITH UNITED CHURCHES
Anglican provinces and dioceses in many parts of the world are included in plans for united churches in their areas. Where such a scheme of Church unity is approved by the province concerned, the contribution brought to it by Anglicans should be in every way whole-hearted and as complete as possible.
In the case of capital and development funds, for example, which are designed to enable the existing province or diocese to fulfil its calling and bear more worthy witness to its tradition, it is our conviction that all of this strength, now thought of as an "Anglican" resource should be brought to the united church. Anglican contributions from outside the area in question, whether financial or personal, should not be lessened because of the participation of the church in unity schemes. Proper steps should be taken to insure to the province or diocese concerned legal continuity and identity, and thus enable them to accept the responsibilities of new and fuller brotherhood.
We respectfully urge the churches of the Anglican Communion to give such assurance to our provinces.
(Prepared and forwarded by the Missionary Executives' Conference. Adopted by the Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy, August 6, 1963.)

Prologue
2. From Canon A.H. Davis (M.S.C.C.) enclosing a Document on th Canonical Status of Overseas Missionaries which had been prepared by a Committee chaired by Bishop Wilkinson. This Document has won approval from the Missionary Executives present at the Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy at its meeting at Huron College from July 29th to August 5th.
Text
"That General approval be given to the Document dealing with Episcopal Jurisdiction of Overseas Missionaries."
Notes
The Document is printed below-
Your Committee studied the revised Canon VIII of the Pension Board and also Canon XXI of General Synod "Transfer of Clergy" and in particular the section dealing with "Jurisdiction". "A Clergyman shall be regarded as subject to the Episcopal Jurisdiction of the Bishop on whose register his name has been entered until he has been removed from such register by transfer to another Diocese."
Your Sub-Committee, on motion of Principal Morden and Professor Prior, recommend that the following policy be adopted by the Executive Committee of the Department of Missions, after consultation with the House of Bishops and or General Synod:
1) "That a Missionary Priest going overseas on short term service retain his license in his Canadian Diocese at the pleasure of the Bishop and seek only "Permission to Officiate" in the overseas Diocese to which he goes."
2) "That a Missionary Priest going for service longer than three years relinquish his licence in his Canadian Diocese and be transferred to the jurisdiction of an Overseas Diocesan Bishop."
3) "That a missionary priest be given "status" in a Canadian Diocese as serving on Missionary Leave in an Overseas Diocese of the anglican Communion, such "status" to be interpreted as meaning:
a) Being officially recognized as an Anglican Church of Canada Missionary serving with the Deparment of Missions of the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada.
b) The Pensionable benefits of said person being assured under Canon VIII of General Synod.
c) That continuing identification be established between his Canadian Diocese and the Overseas Missionary Priest during his period of overseas service and on his return to Canada.
