Participants in a forum at Trinity College in Toronto in November attempted to identify a "meaningful" pluralism - one that recognizes the various communities in Canada without collapsing under the pressure of competing interest groups.

Toronto, Oct. 15, 1981 -- For immediate release
A bilingual Anglican priest who was raised in the United Church and was for two years a member of the Ecumenical Commission of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Valleyfield in Quebec -- certainly appropriate background for someone given national responsibility for the ecumenical relations of the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada.
The Rev. Brian Prideaux, currently Rector of St. Martin's Church in Otterburn Park, Quebec, has been appointed Ecumenical Officer of the Anglican Church of Canada, effective January 1, 1982.
The thirty-eight year old priest was born in London, England but grew up in Montreal. He is a graduate of Sir George Williams University and also has a Bachelor of Divinity and Master of Arts from McGill. He studied theology at Montreal Diocesan (Anglican) Theological College. Father Prideaux is married and has four children.
In addition to his responsibility for national Anglican participation in inter-church bodies and activities, the National Executive Council of the church recently requested that the Ecumenical Officer initiate and encourage inter-faith dialogue with non-Christian bodies.
The General Secretary of the Anglican Church, Archdeacon Harry Hilchey, stated that in making this appointment great emphasis was placed on finding a person who is bilingual, as much of the current ecumenical dialogue, particularly between Roman Catholic and other denominations, is conducted in both French and English.
Father Prideaux is particularly excited about the possibilities of extending to the national scene the warm ecumenical relationships he has enjoyed at the local level. He hopes the national work can help the grass roots encounters to happen and to flourish. "There's a new climate now," he says, "Especially in relations with Roman Catholics. They know it is now officially 'OK' to enter wholeheartedly into ecumenical contacts, and great things are happening."
The Ecumenical Officer is based at the church's National Office in Toronto.

Toronto, Jun. 1, 1979 -- For immediate release
The Anglican Church of Canada has just completed a through-going self-criticism in the presence of third world critics. A four day "Partners in Mission" consultation wound up on Tuesday, May 29 at the University of Toronto.
The concept of Partners in Mission is an accepted one in the Anglican Communion throughout the world. It involves one of the twenty-seven independent, self-governing churches which constitute the Anglican Communion, in a process of critical examination of its programmes, life, structures and priorities in the presence of "Partners" from other countries, churches and cultures. Canadian Anglicans have acted as Partners in such consultations in several African churches and in Ireland, the USA, the Caribbean, South America and Asia.
During the past week more than a hundred Canadian Anglicans, representing the Church's thirty dioceses from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island, and north beyond the Arctic Circle, gathered in the nation's Capital. They were joined by Partners from Burundi, West Africa, the Sudan and South Africa, from the West Indies, New Zealand, Ireland and England, the USA and Asia. There were also representatives from the Lutheran and Roman Catholic Churches in Canada.
In their final report to the consultation, these Partners said, "We have come from continents which have experienced poverty, despair, effects of nuclear holocaust, inhuman racist regimes, military dictatorships, trampling of human rights and division of nations on ideological grounds. We have come too, from countries which are rich and affluent, and from sectors in the Third World which share in those riches and those who do not. In these situations we have experienced sufferings of all kinds - the rat-race of consuming more and more, of being bored, lonely and fearful. Yet we know that through these sufferings we also experience hope for we worship the crucified and risen Lord. In this spirit we share four examples of challenges we see based upon what we have seen and heard at this Consultation."
Their four areas of challenge were the Natives of Canada, the French Fact, the Ministry of the Laity and the Ecumenical Dimension.
The Partners observed, "The Natives of Canada have suffered through hundreds of years of genocide. Entire tribes and people have vanished from the face of the earth. Many of them today live in poverty, illness, early death rates and little or no education. To correct these wrongs requires a change in attitude, a death to the old ways and a rebirth under God." They agreed that they "must commend the Anglican Church of Canada for its long history of ministry to the Native People," but questioned whether native people have been trained for or allowed to assume positions of leadership in the church's structures.
They declared that "lumping the Native problem with the white rural or white isolated area problem will not work." The Partners had all travelled fairly extensively in Canada prior to the Consultation. From that experience and from their discussions in Ottawa, they concluded that there is a "strong undercurrent of prejudice against the Native People in Canada." They acknowledged that there are no simplistic answers, but urged the creation of a more adequately staffed Native "desk or portfolio" on a national basis.
The Partners described the French Fact as, "A people under the threat of losing its identity, its right to live according to its culture, can hardly act as a partner and may become, as a consequence, a burden to the country instead of taking its place as an enriching part of the cultural mosaic of Canada." They continued, "In a word, a whole mentality must be surrendered in order to communicate within the new milieu," and urged that "The Church must study this matter in the spirit of Christ, that is, in a spirit of love, detachment and sharing."
They added, "while fighting for the rights of this or that group, we must not forget that rights are first and foremost human rights; they are not French, they are not English; they are human, but they apply to French or English or Indians or West Indians."
An "inherited clericalism...which is still accepted as the norm" came under sharp criticism in the section of the Partners' report on the Ministry of the Laity. "The real participation of the laity in the mission of the church may pose a threat to the clergy" but that participation must not be "considered a privilege, a temporal innovation or a concession to the spirit of modern times." "A multitude of habits, ready-made judgements and reactions need to be stripped away from us before we can expect to progress very far in dealing with the key issue of the ministry of the laity."
In discussing the Ecumenical Dimensions, the Partners declared, "The general impression given is that the Anglican Church of Canada is self-sufficient and does not naturally look outside itself, whether to other churches in Canada or to other Anglican churches around the world, for working partners in the process of developing the issues which face them in their common service of the Mission of Christ to the world."
Although in principle the Anglican Church of Canada is committed to the "Lund Declaration" (that churches should not do separately what it is possible from them to do ecumenically), the Partners suggested that should mean "looking first to see what things can be done together and not regarding ecumenical cooperation as an optional extra."
The over-all report from the total membership of the Consultation is wide-ranging and lengthy. The discussions gradually crystallized into eight areas in the life of the church today:
- Mission: Theology and Practice
- Christian Lifestyle
- Commitment and Stewardship
- Ministry: Lay/Clergy
- Evangelism
- Social Justice and Action
- Ethnic, Cultural and Linguistic Groups
- Communications and Structures
In each section there was a thorough evaluation of the present situation in the Anglican Church of Canada and an attempt to discover strengths and weaknesses in its life. Strategies for the future were also developed.
These reports will now receive wide distribution in the Dioceses and Ecclesiastical Provinces of the Church and in various national committees of General Synod, for study and discussion. They will have a major influence on the Church's National Programme Committee and National Executive Council when they meet this fall, and on the General Synod of the Church which will be held at the University of Trent in Peterborough in June 1980.

Notes
"Over 500 people attended a two day celebration of the worldwide Anglican Communion in Montreal [Quebec] on the first weekend of June [3-4 June 2005]. The festival focused on the remarkable variety of people from all over the Anglican Communion who worship in churches in the Diocese of Montreal". The event began with a "Parade of Nations" with people "carrying flags and ... wearing national costumes. Large banners identifying the continents of the world led the crowd and each person chose a region to walk behind. Once inside the Cathedral, the festival continued with prayers, songs, readings and dance from all over the world, including Malayalam hymns, Rwandan dance, Ethiopian drums, Caribbean music, Pakistani songs, Indian dance, a Haitian choir, Quebecois songs, contemporary Canadian praise music and hymns from the new Anglican Church in Canada hymn book". The next day featured reflections and discussion about the Anglican Communion in the morning and a series of workshops in the afternoon. "The festival closed with a Eucharist led by Bishop Barry [Clarke] in St. Anselm's Chapel in the Diocesan Offices. At a time when the Communion feels threatened by disunity, it was wonderful to celebrate our unity in diversity".

"The Executive Council of General Synod in joint session with the Department of Christian Social Service at Banff in October 1963 requested our Department to give priority during the next year to a study of biculturalism in Canada, to prepare a submission to the Royal Commission on Biculturalism and Bilingualism, and `to create an informed opinion and a favourable climate in the Church on this subject so that unity and concord may be promoted among the people of Canada'. Accordingly a Committee chaired by the Bishop of Ottawa, the Right Reverend Ernest S. Reed, was created and commenced its work in January, 1964. Details of Committee membership and method of inquiry and study are set forth in the Committee's report to the Executive Council at Lennoxville in September 1964, found on page one of this Bulletin. `The Origins of Biculturalism in Canada' prepared by the Reverend Dr. H.H. Walsh, professor of Church History at the Montreal Diocesan Theological College and a member of the Faculty of Divinity at McGill University, made an excellent historical background and resource document for our study. We commend this article, which forms the first section of the Bulletin, to all who are concerned to understand some of the causes of our present unhappy divisions and misunderstandings. The full text of the Brief is given, preceded by introductory remarks made by the Most Reverend William L. Wright, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Department of Christian Social Service, who presented the submission of the Anglican Church to the Royal Commission. The perforated sheet attached is provided for the use of readers to record their opinions and their ideas regarding the role of the Anglican Church in furthering inter-cultural understanding, good will and unity in out nation". -- Intro.
