Prologue
Bishop Hollis expressed concern about the article in the Canadian Churchman regarding the election of a Suffragan Bishop in the Diocese of Toronto. He said that the Churchman should be an educational tool and should teach that election is people coming together to seek God's will and not "seek election".
Bishop Read said that the article was discussed at the recent meeting of the Churchman Board. He said that the Board recognized that the nomination of a women was newsworthy, and that this had received wide publicity in the secular press.

Prologue
Bishop Nock reminded the house of the General Secretary's letter to all the Bishops in which the following two questions were asked:
(a) Would the Bishops support a revision of the Declaration of Principles of General Synod to make clear that General Synod has authority to enact legislation regarding licensing?
The Bishops agreed that they would support this revision, and that the revised wording be referred to the Provincial Synods.
(b) Should the legislation provide for the disciplining of laity as well as clergy ?
Text
That this House is of the opinion that the proposed Canon XVIII should be entitled "Ecclesiastical Discipline" and should be in three parts:
(a) The first paragraph of Canon XXII or similar statement.
(b) Ecclesiastical discipline respecting the clergy as in proposed Canon XVIII.
(c) Ecclesiastical discipline respecting the laity following somewhat similar lines to those in "B." CARRIED 9-2-82

Notes
APPENDIX B
GUIDELINES - CONTRACT CHAPLAINS SERVING IN CORRECTIONAL SERVICE CANADA
I. Canon XVII - Section 4a
Bishops, Priests and Deacons who are engaged in specialized ministries outside the Diocese where they are registered, shall be considered to be on leave of absence from that Diocese, and subject to the general supervision of the Bishop of the Diocese in which the specialized ministry is exercised.
II. Appointment Procedures
A. Upon receiving an application for appointment from Anglican clergy, the Correctional Service will seek endorsation from the Diocesan Bishop of the applicant. This endorsation is a necessary prerequisite for all candidates.
B. The Office of Personnel Resources will also be notified of any Anglican applications, for information.
C. If, after screening for a specific position, an applicant is placed on a short list for further consideration, the Correctional Service will notify the Office of Personnel Resources, requesting that the Office confirm that, if the applicant is chosen, the Bishop of the Diocese where the position is located would either (i) receive Letters Benedecessit [sic i.e. Bene Decessot] for the individual and license him/her or (ii) accept general supervision as per Canon XVII, Section 4a.
D. The Office of Personnel Resources will seek confirmation from the appropriate Bishop as a prerequisite for further consideration of the applicant by Correctional Service Canada.
III. Transfer Procedures
In the event that a contract chaplain is considered for transfer to an institution located in another Diocese, the procedures in II C and D above will be followed as a prerequisite for such a transfer.
IV. Diocesan Registration
A. At time of appointment as a chaplain in Correctional Service Canada, a decision shall be made by the Diocesan Bishop of the Diocese where the chaplain is registered as to whether the priest's registration is: (i) to be maintained in the Diocese; (ii) to be transferred to the Diocese where the priest is to serve as chaplain; (iii) transferred to the Primatial List of Clergy on the basis of the following criteria:
1. The feasibility of a continuing pastoral relationship between Bishop and priest.
2. The reasonable probability of the priest's return to service in the Diocese within a period of five to ten years.
3. The desire of the Bishop of the Diocese where the priest is to serve as chaplain to receive the priest into that Diocese.
B. If the decision is reached that the priest's registration should continue in the Diocese, the Bishop of the Diocese shall enter into a contractual agreement with Correctional Service Canada regarding the priest's service as a correctional chaplain, and shall continue as the contracting party so long as the priest remains a chaplain in the Correctional Service Canada.
C. If the decision is reached that the priest is to be transferred to the Diocese where he/she is to service as a chaplain, the Bishop of the receiving Diocese shall enter into a contractual relationship with Correctional Service Canada regarding the priest's service as a correctional chaplain and shall continue as the contracting party so long as the priest continues to serve as a chaplain within the Diocese. In the event that the priest is transferred to another Diocese by Correctional Service Canada, the options in III above are once again considered.
D. If the decision is reached that the priest's registration should be transferred to the Primatial List of Clergy, the Primate or his designate shall enter into contractual agreement with Correctional Service Canada regarding the priest's service as a correctional chaplain, and shall continue as the contracting party so long as the priest remains a chaplain in Correctional Service Canada.
E. It shall be the responsibility of each chaplain in Correctional Service Canada to be in personal contact or correspondence at least twice each year with his/her Diocesan Bishop or the Primate, describing the major dimensions of his/her ministry, and any areas where the Bishop's support may be appropriate.
F. In cases where a Diocesan Bishop is the contracting party with Correctional Service Canada, a copy of the contract will be forwarded to the Personnel Resources Officer for information.
G. In every case, a chaplain in Correctional Service Canada shall be subject to the general supervision of the Bishop of the Diocese in which his/her ministry is exercised, pursuant to Canon XVII, Section 4a.
H. The Personnel Resources Officer will provide a continuing relationship of support and contact for all chaplains in the Correctional Service Canada on behalf of their Diocesan Bishop or the Primate, and will monitor all contracts on their behalf.
I. The Personnel Resources Officer will be available to provide assistance to priests seeking a church appointment at the conclusion of the contractual term of chaplaincy service.
V. Annual Appraisal
A. Wherever possible, the appropriate Bishop or his/her designate will participate in a chaplain's annual performance appraisal.
B. If such participation is not possible, the Personnel Resources Officer will be asked to either participate in the appraisal process, or arrange for an appropriate representative of the Church to participate.
The above guidelines were approved by the House of Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada on February 19, 1987.

Prologue
Bishop Jones raised some of the problems in having to maintain links with Chaplains who are working in another Diocese for all or a large part of their ministry.
Bishop Stiff reminded the House that, some years ago, considerable work was done on the licensing of clergy. It was said, at that time, that wherever a priest is working, he should have some relationship with the Bishop of the Diocese in which he is working.
The Primate said that this is a very complex issue and raised the possibility of having Government Chaplains linked in the same way as the military chaplains by a Bishop Ordinary.
It was recognized that there is a growing number of chaplaincy jobs and agreed that a priest should be in a relationship with his diocesan bishop.
Text
That this House of Bishops reaffirms the principle that every priest should be in a relationship with a local Bishop, and requests the Personnel Resources Officer to study the matter and develop Guidelines to be referred back to the House of Bishops for study. CARRIED #3-6-86

Prologue
The Report of the Clergy Marriages Task Force was received and discussed. The policy of the Diocese of Calgary with respect to dysfunction and marital breakdown was found to be helpful in setting out a model of diocesan procedures and guidelines for the caring of clergy families. Some elements of it might be in conflict with human rights codes.
The bishops were informed that a Personnel Review Task Force has been established to study what services the national office is providing the dioceses since the retirement of the Reverend Richard Johns. A questionnaire is to go to all bishops as well as other networks of the church, and a recommendation will be made to NEC at some time in the future.
