The Province of Canada

The Metropolitical Cross One of four provinces in the Anglican Church of Canada, the Ecclesiastical Province of Canada was founded in 1860, and thus predates the national structure by three decades.

The Province currently includes seven dioceses: Montreal, Quebec, Fredericton, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, Western Newfoundland, Central Newfoundland and Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador. Provincial Synod meets every three years in order to provide opportunities for fellowship, for discussion, and for co-operation in the mission of the Church in this Province.

The Province of Canada represents the first effort to enable dioceses in Canada to meet together and to organize our common life and work. Created by Royal Letters Patent, with authority to meet in Synod and to enact canonical legislation, the Province of Canada pre-dates the formation of the Anglican Church of Canada. As a province within the national Anglican Church of Canada, we are analogous to the provinces of Canterbury or York in England, or the several provinces within the Episcopal Church USA. We believe that we are the first such province to launch a web site.

We invite you to visit our site and discover more about our Province. The links at the left of each page will guide you.

Come and see our Coat of Arms officially presented to Synod on September 14, 2000.
