"David Jones, chancellor of the Council of General Synod (CoGS), informed council members of a strong possibility that as much as $2.7 million paid to the Residential Schools Settlement will be returned to the 32 Anglican entities involved -- General Synod, the Missionary Corporation and the 30 dioceses. He explained why and led a discussion about what might be done with General Synod's share once the final financial information is confirmed". In 2007, the "Roman Catholic settlement was for $79 million, and 'there had been an agreement that our proportionate share was 19.8572 per cent of theirs. That caused our $25 million number to be reduced to $15,687,188', he said. As a result, each of the Anglican entities' contributions were recalculated, and some refunds were paid". "He noted that the 30 diocese would make their own decisions about the appropriate use of their shares, but CoGS could consider what it might want to do with General Synod's share of $322,348".
