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
"On March 10 [2014] charges were withdrawn against the diocese of Brandon's Rev. Noah Njegovan. A diocesan letter read out on Sunday, March 16 [2014] explained that a withdrawal of charges is not the same as a dismissal or stay of charges; the Crown can proceed against Njegovan at a later date. Njegovan did not enter a plea to the charge of fraud over $5,000. The charge resulted from alleged misuse of a diocesan credit card for personal expenses in excess of $190,000, from March 2010 to September 2012 when he was executive archdeacon and assistant to his father, Bishop James Njegovan. The letter also outlined new costs for forensic auditing, payable by the diocese. Bishop Njegovan previously declined to comment on the case because of his familial connection to the accused".
