"It's official -- tablets will replace binders at General Synod this summer. Council of General Synod (CoGS) approved the use of tablets at General Synod, after hearing presentations March 10 [2016] by planning committee chair Dean Peter Wall and General Synod web manager Brian Bukowski". "Since the tablets will be rented, delegates will return them after General Synod. However, Bukowski said, delegates will also be able to download the app onto other devices -- their own laptop or desktop computers, or phones, for example -- and sync it with the app loaded onto the tablets. This way, he said, they'll be able to keep all the documents from General Synod after they leave". "As demonstrated by Bukowski, the app features a map of the hotel, with a dot indicating where the delegate is supposed to be at any one time during General Synod. The app also allows delegates to see all the resolutions, updated every 90 seconds with their status -- amended, approved and so on, he said. General Synod attendees will also be able to send messages to one another, and even instantly share photos, he said".

The March 2019 Council of General Synod (CoGS) meeting passed 12 twelve resolutions presented by the Rev. Eileen Scully, director of Faith, Worship and Ministry. "Scully began with March 15 [2019] report on the 'Anglican Communion Safe Church Charter' and the 'Protocol for the Disclosure of Ministry Suitability Information between the Churches of the Anglican Communion'." "Bob Boeckner, trustee for the Pension Committee, also presented the committee's report to CoGS. Facing intensifying decline in membership and a need for greater equity, he said, the trustees has established an expansion committee to explore how best to provide equitable and sustainable pensions. According to Boeckner, proposed solutions included winding up the Lay Retirement Plan and enrolling all members in the General Synod Pension Plan; expanding the General Synod Pension Plan employer base by offering the plan to other not-for-profit employers; and enabling amendments to Canon VIII and IX to carry out these plans". "CoGS also elected Dean Peter Wall as deputy prolocutor and appointed Laurel Parson as archivist of General Synod".

"The past decade has not been an easy one for the diocese of Niagara. Beset by financial woes, theological divisions over the place of gays and lesbians in the church and a series of lawsuits from parishes that left the diocese to join the breakaway Anglican Network in Canada, diocesan leadership has faced challenging times. But these days, its leaders are cautiously optimistic about the diocese's future. For one, a settlement with the Anglican Network reached in 2012 has ended crippling lawsuits and left parish buildings from three breakaway churches in the hands of the diocese. Over the past three years, said diocesan Bishop Michael Bird, the diocese has been able to climb out of a financial hole 'and the financial picture of the diocese is pretty stable'. Canon Terry DeForest, vision advocate and director of human resources, added, 'we're no longer just feeling at the mercy of those financial situations'. A decision was made, for instance, to turn real estate assets into funds" (p. 8). "These conversations have been crucial to the diocese's most ambitious real estate decision yet: developing Cathedral Place (where the diocesan office and Christi Church Cathedral are located) into a mixed-use housing and office complex that will include a number of market-value condominium units. Christ Church Cathedral's dean, Peter Wall, said the decision was a matter of sound financial stewardship. 'Our aim was the highest and best use of what we had in order to guarantee ourselves a sustainable future for the next 50 to 100 years', he said" (p. 10). The Rev. Bill "Mous said the developer chosen for the project, Ottawa-based Windmill Developments, has a 'triple bottom-line approach', in which social and environmental effects are considered alongside economic interests. 'It's not just about profit. They strive to ensure the dignity of people, the care and well-being of the planet" (p. 10).
Inset column with basic statistics about the Diocese of Niagara accompanies article on page. 8.
N.B. Correction pertaining to this article appeared in the Nov. 2015 issue of the Anglican Journal, page 5: "Canon Christyn Perkons was identified as the Rev. Christyn Perkons in the caption of a photo accompanying the article, 'Diocesan leaders cautiously optimistic about the future', Oct. 2015, p. 8. The same caption misspelled the last name of Joanna Beck (not Becks) and should have included an apostrophe in the name, Christ Church's Cathedral in Hamilton, Ont."

"General Synod might get a technological boost at its July 7-12 [2016] meeting in Richmond Hill, Ont., with the introduction of tablet computers for delegates and members, said planning committee chair Dean Peter Wall. The committee will ask Council of General Synod (CoGS) during its spring meeting, to approve a proposal of doing away with putting voluminous documents in traditional three-ring binders and instead lease tablets, onto which information can be preloaded". "Wall first saw this technology in action while observing The Episcopal Church's (TEC) General Convention in Salt Lake City last summer [2015], and said he was struck by how much more efficient it was. .... (General Convention -- TEC's governing body -- has about 1,100 members. The Anglican Church of Canada's General Synod is expected to have between 250 and 280 delegated this year.)" "While the total cost of the tablets is estimated to be around $30,000 (which includes the cost of the app, back-up tablets and on-site technical services) the money that will be saved on printing, photocopying and paper will amount to around $18,000 -- meaning the tablets will cost around $12,000 more than is usually allocated for distribution of information materials, said Wall".
