Bishop's Office

The Bishop's Office, traditionally called the Episcopal Office, comprises the Bishop and the Executive Archdeacon, who is appointed by and accountable to the Bishop. There are two staff positions connected with this office: the Assistant to the Bishop, who provides administrative support, and the Synod and Council Administrator, who coordinates the annual Synod and Diocesan Council meetings.

Linked to the Episcopal Office are the Dean of Ottawa, who serves the Bishop, and the Chancellors of the Diocese, who provide counsel as needed. The Clerical Secretary and the Lay Secretary of Synod provide support to the Episcopal Office and the Synod and Council Administrator.

Ordained Ministry Formation and Support is one of the responsibilities of the Episcopal Office. The Executive Archdeacon chairs the Postulancy Panel and works with persons seeking ordination.

The Safe Church component is an oversight responsibility, as are diocesan communications and human resources
