The Anglican Church of Canada is the oldest of our three partner denominations having formed the national body of the General Synod in 1893; although it did not name itself the Anglican Church of Canada until 1955. Its roots lie in the Church of England which had separated from the Roman Catholic Church in the 16th century. It is in full communion with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. The national pastoral leader and Chief Executive Officer of General Synod is known as The Primate. The Most Rev. Linda Nicholls became the Primate in 2019.
Organizationally, the North Thompson Ecumenical Shared Ministry is part of the Territory of the People, formerly known as the Anglican Parishes of the Central Interior. Bishop Barbara Andrews has retired. Bishop-elect Lincoln Mckoen began his work with the Territory of the People on May 1, 2020.
Canadian Anglicans respond to national and international emergencies, refugees, development, and justice issues through The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund.
