With regret and sorrow, the Church announces receipt of allegations of sexual misconduct concerning Archbishop Mark MacDonald, who has resigned as National Indigenous Anglican Archbishop in the Anglican Church of Canada, and formally relinquished the exercise of the ordained ministry pursuant to Canon XIX, effective April 20, 2022.

In keeping with A Call to Human Dignity, the Council of General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada expressed the Church’s commitment to ensure that:

  • All our workplaces are free from violence, coercion, discrimination, and sexual harassment.
  • No one is subjected to sexual misconduct of any kind.
  • We deal promptly, seriously and systematically with all complaints of sexual misconduct.
  • Those who hold positions of trust or power in the church do not take advantage of, or abuse that trust.......

We extend, with sorrow, our prayers for healing to all those involved, as we deal with the consequences of this situation.
We continue to work for respect and dignity in all our relationships.
