Canons, Bylaws and Regulations of the Diocese


The legal and procedural framework for the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa is found in a document called the Canons, Bylaws and Regulations (CBRs). Canons are the laws of the Church, governing its life and discipline.

The 2012 edition of the CBRs is available here in PDF files:

The 2012 edition of the CBRs, which is current to the end of 2011, has had changes made to its content as presented at subsequent Synods. These changes will be incorporated into the text of the next edition, but for the meantime, please scan the following files, which represent changes presented to Synod by year, to make sure you are consulting the most current version of the section:

Synod 2012

Synod 2013

Synod 2014
Synod 2015
Please note that the following file, which appeared as Bylaw 3.30 INDEMNIFICATION in the 2004 edition of the CBRs, was dropped by mistake in the 2012 edition but remains part of the CBRs and will appear in the next edition:
