Resolution Number A181 from General Synod 2019 – Appointment of Jubilee Commission

Be it resolved that this General Synod:

Affirm the creation of the Jubilee Commission by Council of General Synod, as adopted by the Council at its June 2018 meeting. 

At their June 2018 meeting, the Council of General Synod adopted the following motion:

That Council of General Synod appoint a Jubilee Commission to propose a just, sustainable and equitable funding base for the self-determining Indigenous Anglican church

The Commission would:

  • Have a three-year term, potentially renewable.
  • Consist of 6 members
  • Report to the Council of General Synod
  • Including significant representation from the current Primate’s Commission on the Doctrine of Discovery Reconciliation and Justice.

The Commission would be charged with examining historic and current funds made available for Indigenous ministry at various levels of the church’s structure, assessing current funds designated to Indigenous programming, and assessing broader property questions. Topics for consideration might include current salary levels of Indigenous clergy and strategies to move towards parity, possible redistribution of portions of property sales on a principled basis, and increasing alignment between funds for Indigenous ministry and Indigenous oversight of these funds.



In the normal course, an ordinary motion must be passed by a majority of the members of General Synod present and voting together.

Six members of General Synod may, prior to the question being put, require a vote by Orders, with a majority of each Order being necessary to pass. 

If a question passes on a Vote by Orders, any six members (two from each of three different dioceses) may immediately before the next item of business require a vote to be taken by dioceses.  A motion passes if a majority (or a tie) of dioceses vote in favour.
