Lambeth Conference

Lambeth Conference 2008The Lambeth Conference is held every 10 years when the more than 800 bishops of the Anglican Communion meet. Bishop John Travers Lewis, first Bishop of Ontario, suggested the first conference held in 1867 or, if not so, he certainly was one of its original promoters.

This year's conference begins in Canterbury, Kent July 16 and continues until August 3. Events will take place at Canterbury Cathedral and on the University of Kent at Canterbury campus. July 24, the bishops and their spouses will spend the day in London where activities will be hosted by the Archbishop of Canterbury at Lambeth Palace and by the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Anglican Archbishops of Canada

The Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada is Archbishop Fred Hiltz. He was elected the national archbishop in June 2007.

The Anglican Church of Canada is organized into 4 ecclesiastical provinces each headed by a Metropolitan who is given the title of Archbishop. The Metropolitan is elected from among the province's diocesan bishops and continues his responsibilities of bishop of his diocese.

The oldest of the provinces is the Province of Canada, founded in 1861. It is comprised of 7 dioceses in Quebec and the Maritimes. The Province of Rupert's Land, founded in 1875, is comprised of 10 dioceses in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, northwestern Ontario and the Arctic. The Province of Ontario is comprised of 7 dioceses and the Province of British Columbia and Yukon is comprised of 5 dioceses and the former diocese of Cariboo.
