Prologue
Bishop Allan reported on the obtaining of adequately trained personnel to work in the North. Three pilot projects to encourage personnel for work in the North were suggested:
(a) Vocations Conference for Theology Students
(b) Vocations Conference for those recently ordained
(c) Deployment Consultation among Bishops.
Various types of training for theology students were discussed and it was the general concensus of the House that this should be a concern of the whole of the Canadian Church.
The Bishops were reminded of a resolution passed in 1973 to this effect:
"We recommend that the names of all postulants be registered with the Personnel Office and that the sponsoring Bishop identify the men whom he will not be able to place within his own diocese, and that this notice be given no later than the beginning of the postulants final year in seminary."

Prologue
Bishop Allan spoke on behalf of the Council of the North and stated that the members would be ready to offer themselves as Consultants upon request. Concern was also expressed regarding the complexity of government forms which have to be filled in and the requirement for Social Insurance Numbers. It appears to be nearly impossible for native people to complete the required documents. The House was asked for suggestions in dealing with the Government on behalf of the Inuit.
Text
That the House of Bishops authorize discussion with the Government on this issue, in consultation with the other churches. CARRIED
