Canon Pastor

The canon pastor is responsible for ensuring that individuals and parishes comply with the diocesan Sexual Misconduct Policy and the Safe Church/Screening in Faith Policy.

What happens when something goes wrong?

The bishop, executive officer, diocesan council, along with the canon pastor are responsible for ensuring that the diocese is a safe community. All clergy, lay employees and high-risk volunteers(those working in positions that leave room for vulnerability) must sign an affidavit indicating that they have read and promise to abide by the diocesan Sexual Misconduct Policy. When a complaint is laid under this policy, the bishop and canon pastor call together an investigative team from amongst the diocesan response team (appointed by diocesan council) and immediate action istaken.
