The General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada (ACC) is the chief governing and legislative body of the ACC, the sole Canadian representative of the Anglican Communion. The first General Synod session was held in Toronto in 1893, with the proviso that the parameters of its authority would not undermine the local independence of dioceses.
General Synod 2019 will be hosted by the Diocese of New Westminster in Vancouver, British Columbia from July 10-16.
The Diocese of Niagara’s General Synod 2019 delegates are:
- Youth Delegate: Ms. Claire Christoff
- Lay Delegates: Mr. Greg Tweney, Ms. Siobhan Bennett, Mr. Andrew Clinkard and Canon Pat Davis
- Clergy Delegates: The Venerable Valerie Kerr, The Reverend Canon Bill Mous, The Venerable Dr. David Anderson, The Reverend Canon Martha Tatarnic and, of course Bishop Susan Bell
