List of Delegates to General Synod

Article excerpt

How people get elected to synod

Each of the 30 diocesan synods across Canada elects a prescribed number of delegates.

The delegates include both clergy and lay people.

The delegates are elected by ballot; clergy voting for clergy members, laity voting for lay members.

The number of delegates each diocese is allowed to elect is determined by the number of licenced clergy in that diocese.

Diocesan bishops, coadjutor, assistant and suffragan bishops vote with the order of bishops. Retired bishops have a voice but no vote at synod.

1998 General Synod in Montreal:

There were 41 bishops, 113 clergy, 113 lay people and 28 youth delegates registered. Also in attendance were the Primate, the Prolocutor, the Deputy Prolocutor, the Chancellor, support staff, visitors, ecumenical and overseas partners, presenters and spouses.
