Written on the back of the photo, "At the opening luncheon of the Dominion Annual WA meetings, Mrs. Sarah Simon, a life member from Whitehorse, Yukon, presents the Primate, Archbishop Clark, with a white stole of caribou hide which she had made for him. This was her second such gift. She also made a stole for the late Archbishop Derwyn Owen, Primate from 1934 to 1947.
The office of the Primate was created in 1893 at the first session of the General Synod of the Church of England in Canada. The Primate is the President of the General Synod and the senior Metropolitan of the Anglican Church of Canada. At the beginning, the Primate was the President of General Synod, the Metropolitan of their Ecclesiastical Province and Archbishop of their diocese. The Primate was elected from the Metropolitans by the House of Bishops until 1931 when it was changed to election by the members of General Synod. In 1969, a new Commission on the Primacy recommended that Canon III regarding the Primate be amended to require the Primate to maintain an office at the national headquarters of the Church, with a pastoral relationship to the whole Church, but no fixed Primatial See. The first Primate to work from the national office was the Most Rev. Howard Hewlett Clark.
The Primate exercises a multi-faceted ministry within the Anglican Church of Canada. Overall, the Primate is responsible for leading the church in discerning and pursuing the mission of God. The Primate’s sacramental role includes participating in the consecration of new bishops and presiding at liturgical events of General Synod. The Primate participates in ordinations and confirmations at the invitation of the local diocesan bishop.
On an administrative level, the Primate serves as president of the General Synod, chair of the Council of General Synod, and chair of the House of Bishops. The Primate also serves as chief executive officer of General Synod staff, most of whom work at the national office in Toronto. The Primates who have served the church from the General Synod Church House are: Howard Hewlett Clark, 1959-1970; Edward Walter Scott, 1971-1986; Michael Geoffrey Peers, 1986-2004; Andrew Sandford Hutchison, 2004-2007; Frederick James Hiltz, 2007-2019; Nicholls, Linda Carol, 2019- .
