Canadian Anglican Church

The Canadian Church is, in many respects, even more liberal than ECUSA.  In New Westminster Diocese, which includes the city of Vancouver, services of same-sex blessings were introduced after several years of prevaracating.   Clergy who objected to these moves have found themselves castigated and one Bishop who tried to offer them pastoral support was threatened with legal action.

The Canadian Church is now looking at same-sex marriages and several clergy have now opted for the oversight of African Churches as the Anglican Mission in Canada.
