Often referred to as the Annual General Meeting, Synod is the governing body of the diocese; made up of all the licensed clergy, lay representatives of all the parishes, ex officio members, and the bishop. 

Inspired by the fourth Mark of Mission of the Anglican Church of Canada, to seek to transform unjust structures of society, the challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation, the theme for this year's Synod comes from the Anglican Indigenous Covenant Collect: "Walking in your way towards justice and wholeness".

In relation to this theme, the guest speaker this year comes to us from the Diocese of Moosonee, our diocesan neighbours to the North. The Reverend Norman Wesley, Incumbent of St. Thomas, Moose Factory, is an aboriginal priest and former teacher.
