Wardens and Treasurers Consultations for Constitution and Canons

In November, 2016, the Synod of the Diocese of Ontario approved, in principle, a draft of a new Constitution and new set of Canons.

The motion passed by Synod directed that these drafts be circulated to all parishes, organizations and groups within the Diocese with an opportunity afforded to them for consultation, comment and recommendation.

The Canons & Governance Committee is to review and incorporate any appropriate recommendations, and submit a final draft version of both documents to Synod Council for approval for presentation to Synod in November, 2018.

As part of the consultation process, the Committee has scheduled meetings for all Wardens and Treasurers for the following time and location:

Saturday, May 26, 2018.
2:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Christ Church, 39 Everett St., Belleville.

In order to have a fruitful discussion of the Constitution and Canons, the Committee expects that all Wardens and Treasurers will attend one of these meetings and will have read the relevant provisions of the documents applicable to their duties and responsibilities. This is not a training session but a consultation meeting.

The draft documents are available on the diocesan website. If you have problems accessing same, please contact Mark Hauser at 613-777-0534 or mhauser@ontario.anglican.ca.

IMPORTANT: This is your opportunity to provide input into the final draft of these documents before they are presented to Synod.

Please take the time to review these provisions and come to the meeting since your comments on these governing documents are important.

The Canons & Governance Committee thanks you for your contribution to this process.
