Anglican Church of Canada

The Anglican Church of Canada (the "ACC") is the Canadian branch of the Anglican Communion. It formally consists of 800,000 members worshipping in 29 dioceses and one grouping of parishes in the Central Interior of British Columbia, although over 2 million Canadians, or 6.9% of the population, declared themselves as Anglican in the 2001 Census. As a proportion of the population at large Anglicans have been steadily decreasing, due both to attrition and to large scale immigration to Canada by persons of other religious affiliation.

Prior to 1955, the Church was formally styled the Church of England in Canada and in general parlance was called "the English Church."

Dioceses and provinces

The ACC is divided into four ecclesiastical provinces, 29 dioceses and one grouping of churches in British Columbia that was formerly the Diocese of Cariboo, until it was disestablished because of residential schools litigation costs. This area of churches, while not a diocese, is now collectively referred to as the Anglican Parishes of the Central Interior (APCI). Each province has its own archbishop, known as the Metropolitan, and each diocese (and the APCI) has a bishop.

History

The first English (Catholic) clergy arrived in Canada as chaplains on John Cabot's expedition in 1497. The first Anglican Eucharist on Canadian territory was celebrated in 1578 by Robert Wolfall, who was chaplain to Martin Frobisher's expedition to the Arctic. The Parish of St. John the Baptist in St. John's, Newfoundland is the oldest Anglican parish in Canada, founded in 1699 in response to a petition drafted by the Anglican townsfolk of St. John's and sent to the Bishop of London, the Rt. Rev. Henry Compton. Clergy is the generic term used to describe the formal religious leadership within a given religion. ...

Members of the Church of England established the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in 1701 which provided missionaries to Canada until 1940. Another Anglican mission, the Church Missionary Society was established in 1799, and sent missionaries to try to convert Canada's First Nations until World War I. The Church of England in Canada, as it was called until the 1950s, established numerous residential schools which sought to assimilate native peoples into British concepts of civilization. The Church of England is the officially established Christian church in England, and acts as the mother and senior branch of the worldwide Anglican Communion, as well as a founding member of the Porvoo Communion. ...

The Anglican Church was a dominant feature of the compact governments that dominated the colonies in British North America. Adherents to the Church of England were also numerous amongst the United Empire Loyalists who fled to Canada after the American Revolution.

After the conquest of Quebec and the American Revolution, many leading Anglicans argued for the Church of England to become the established church in the Canadian colonies. The Constitutional Act of 1791 was promulgated, and so interpreted to mean that the Church was the established Church in the Canadas. The Church of England was established by law in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. In Lower Canada (now Quebec), the presence of a Roman Catholic majority made establishment in that province politically unwise.

In Upper Canada (now Ontario), leading dissenters such as Methodist minister Egerton Ryerson would later argue against establishment. Following the Upper Canada Rebellion and the Durham Report and establishment of responsible government in the 1840s, the unpopularity of the Anglican-dominated Family Compact made establishment a moot point. The Church was disestablished in Nova Scotia in 1850 and Upper Canada in 1854. By the time of Confederation in 1867, the Church of England was disestablished throughout British North America.

The Clergy reserves, land that had been reserved for use by the Protestant clergy, became a major issue in the mid-19th century. Anglicans argued that the land was meant for their exclusive use, while other Protestant denominations demanded that it be divided among them.

Until the 1830s, the Anglican church in Canada was treated as the property of the Church of England: bishops were appointed by the church in England, and funding for the church came from the British Parliament. The first Canadian synods were established in the 1850s, giving the Canadian church a degree of self-government. As a result of a Judicial Committee of the Privy Council decision in 1861 (Long v. Gray), all Anglican churches in colonies of the British Empire became self-governing. Even so, the first General Synod for all of Canada was not held until 1893.

In recent years the Anglican Church of Canada has been a leading force for liberal reform within the Anglican Communion. In the 1970s, Primate Ted Scott argued at the Lambeth Conference in favour of women's ordination. The Anglican Church of Canada ordained its first female priest in 1976 and its first female bishop in 1993. More recently, beginning in 2002, the New Westminster Diocese has permitted the blessing of same-sex unions, a move that has resulted in condemnation from other Anglican churches around the world and has threatened an international schism. Just over a decade earlier, in 1992 an Anglican priest, James Ferry, was brought before a Bishops' Court for being in a same-sex relationship. Ferry was stripped of his licence to preach and "inhibited" from practising other Anglican rituals. Ferry left the church and joined the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto; in 1998, Ferry was partially reinstated. As of 2004, the Anglican Church has not resolved the either the question of ordaining non-celibate gay and lesbian clergy or the question of blessing same-sex unions. 1970 (MCMLXX) was a common year starting on Thursday (the link is to a full 1970 calendar). ...

Primate

The Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada is elected by the general synod. Primates hold the ex officio rank of archbishop but as with Presiding Bishops of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the USA and unlike Primates of England, Australia and elsewhere, they are not diocesan bishops and generally do not carry out ordinary episcopal functions; they originally held office for life but in recent years they have retired at the age of 70.
