Subject: Strategic Planning Process for 2022 

Moved By: Ms. Cynthia Haines-Turner
Seconded By: The Very Rev. Peter Wall

Be it resolved that this General Synod:  

Direct the Council of General Synod in partnership with the entire church, prayerfully to undertake a strategic planning process that will lead to the presentation of a proposal to the 2022 meeting of the General Synod for our ministry and mission with the General Synod.

Submitted By: Council of General Synod 

Does this motion contain within it any financial implications?      Yes     No

If yes, has the General Synod Expenditures Committee considered the implications?   Yes    No


The current strategic plan ‘Vision 2019’ was extended by the Council of General Synod until 2022.  This resolution initiates a process to develop a new strategic plan in consultation all expressions of the church – dioceses, provinces, General Synod, the Indigenous church.


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.
