Notes
"The Anglican Church of Canada's General Synod has requested bishops and deans to focus, for 22 days, from May 31 to June 21 [2017], 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 [2017], 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'."

Notes
"Issues of leadership and ministry dominated discussions at the House of Bishops this fall [November 2009]. Topics ranged from declining revenues and membership, to new and creative ways of doing church". "Like the Anglican Church of Canada, whichhas embarked on Vision 2019m a project to create its long-term strategic plan, the ELCIC [Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada] is also 'in a process of structural renewal', said ELCIC National Bishop Susan Johnson, adding that since 1986, the ELCIC has lost 23 per cent of its members". "Archbishop Fred Hiltz , primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, noted the church has four new metropolitans, and many new bishops, 'It's a real opportunity to reshape our work', he said".
