Archbishop Fred Hiltz commented on the 20 October 2009 announcement of an Apostolic Constitution that "made a provision for Anglicans who want to be received into full communion with the See of Rome, to retain certain aspects of the Anglican tradition. Details released on Nov. 9  show that it allows Anglican converts to retain some of their traditions and practices, such as the eucharist." Archbishop Hiltz said: "I personally don't think there are going to be any huge implications from this. We are talking about a very small number of [Anglican] people who will respond to this provision that the Pope [Benedict XVI] is putting in place". The Canadian Anglican-Roman Catholic Bishops' Dialogue is scheduled to meet on 18 and 20 November 2009 in Vancouver, B.C., and the main topic of discussion will be "the growing global problem of human traffficking". "Dialogue co-chair, Dennis Drainville, bishop of the diocese of Quebec [said] 'I think the good will that has been built up over 40 years will continue'. However, he expected many questions [to] surface at the meeting, such as, 'What does this mean ? Why has this come now ? Why has there been no consultation on the part of the Vatican with the Anglican Communion ?'"
"The recent Anglican-Roman Catholic Bishops' Dialogue held here [Vancouver BC] has produced a joint statement outlining concerns about human trafficking at the February 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver. Calling the Olympic Games 'a celebration of human development through sport', the statement made it clear that the bishops are united as they 'stand together to call attention to the profound socal ill of human trafficking'. They said 'buying and selling of human beings subverts the very essence of the Olympic spirit'."
"The Anglican Church of Canada's General Synod has requested bishops and deans to focus, for 22 days, from May 31 to June 21 , on renewing the church's commitment to support the work of the Anglican Fund for Healing and Reconciliation through prayers, participation in awareness-raising campaigns and donations. Early this year , Council of General Synod (CoGS) agreed to dedicate the undesignated proceeds of Giving with Grace, General Synod's annual fundraising campaign, to replenish the fund. For the next five years, the fund -- created in 1992 as part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement -- will focus on language recovery". General Secretary, Archdeacon Michael Thompson, "stressed that while the Anglican Church of Canada has met its legal obligations under the settlement agreement, 'we're far from finished with our spiritual and moral obligation to continue to support the healing work that is underway among those survivors and in those communities'."
