On July 11, 2016 at the General Synod (the chief governing body) of the Anglican Church of Canada, a motion passed first reading (it requires two consecutive readings) to amend the Canon on Marriage so as to provide for the solemnization in the church of same-sex marriages. The motion will return to General Synod for second reading in 2019.
