"David Jones, chancellor of the Council of General Synod (CoGS), informed council members of a strong possibility that as much as $2.7 million paid to the Residential Schools Settlement will be returned to the 32 Anglican entities involved -- General Synod, the Missionary Corporation and the 30 dioceses. He explained why and led a discussion about what might be done with General Synod's share once the final financial information is confirmed". In 2007, the "Roman Catholic settlement was for $79 million, and 'there had been an agreement that our proportionate share was 19.8572 per cent of theirs. That caused our $25 million number to be reduced to $15,687,188', he said. As a result, each of the Anglican entities' contributions were recalculated, and some refunds were paid". "He noted that the 30 diocese would make their own decisions about the appropriate use of their shares, but CoGS could consider what it might want to do with General Synod's share of $322,348".

"The Anglican Church of Canada will release an additional $125,000 to help defray the costs of providing Indian residential schools-related documents to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) of Canada". "Up to $30,000 of the amount will support dioceses in their legal obligations to provide archival documents as part of the revised Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement (IRSSA). The remaining $95,000 will fund a digital version of documents that will be accessible to the public through the National Research Centre. The funds are over and above the $50,000 that General Synod Archives estimates it will need to provide the documents". "Archdeacon Michael Thompson, the national church's general secretary, told CoGS the additional contribution goes beyond what the church is required to do under the IRSSA". "The church has decided to respond positively to the request not only because it seeks to honour its legal obligation but also because it acknowledges its 'solemn moral obligation' to former residential school students and their families, as well as their communities, said Thompson. The Anglican Church of Canada operated over 30 residential schools across Canada over a 150-year period".

"A former student of the Elkhorn Indian Residential School, set up by an Anglican missionary in 1888, has donated $50,000 -- $40,000 of which was his entire settlement from the revised residential schools agreement -- to an inner city homeless shelter in Winnipeg. 'I'm hoping for the best for the people', William Woodford, 85, told reporters who heard of his generous act and showed up at Siloam Mission when he delivered the bank draft on March 2 [2009]". "In a related development, the Anglican Church of Canada, along with other churches, is urging the government to declare the month between May 26 and June 21 (National Aboriginal Day), as a month of healing and reconciliation to help Canadians focus on the 150-year legacy of forced assimilation through the Indian residential schools". "Meanwhile, former students and representatives of the churches that are signatory to the revised Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement (IRSSA) gathered for a round table meeting in Ottawa March 23 [2009] and agreed to the importance of having a ceremony for the new Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) members who will be appointed. Esther Wesley, indigenous healing co-ordinator of the Anglican church's partnerships department who attended the meeting, said the view was expressed that the IRSSA is 'more than an agreement; it is a spiritual covenant' that involved aboriginal communities across Canada'."

Notes
Letter from Ralph Goodale about the alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process and the settlement of residential schools cases. "Our objective is an ADR option that is: fast and simple; readily accessible through a straightforward application form; human and safe for claimants; less costly to administer, but fully equivalent to litigation in the value of the settlements it generates. ADR proceedings will be non-adversarial before skilled adjudicators, acting independently and at arm's length from the government".

Notes
"The Anglican Fund for Healing and Reconciliation has been given a new lease on life in its 25th year, following a decision by Council of General Synod (CoGS) to dedicate the undesignated proceeds of General Synod's annual fundraising campaign to replenish it. In 2015, the campain Giving with Grace raised $15,000 according to audited figures from General Synod. But the hope is that with a dedicated purpose, the campaign will be able to raise $1 million, enough to replenish the fund for five years. In line with the stipulations of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, the fund was to spend the last of its money by 2019. Once the money it had been granted through the settlement fund has run out, the future of the fund was uncertain. The last of the fund's money was budgeted for 2017" (p. 1). Esther "Wesley, who has served as co-ordinator since 2001, said the Canadian Anglican church could not 'afford not to go on [supporting]' the Healing Fund's work. 'Some form of [funding] has to fo on if we are serious about reconciliation', she said. 'Not just words but action -- that's what people are looking for'. The decision allows the fund's work to continue, but it will be in a reduced capacity. For the past 10 years, the fund has been disbursing between $300,000 and $600,000 a year, and Wesley said the new budget of $200,000 will require the fund to be more focused in what it supports. Wesley believes the area where the fund can effect the most change is through language preservation" (p. 14).
