The 2023 Assembly will take place from June 27 to July 2 at the University of Calgary, General Secretary Archdeacon Alan Perry said in his report to Council of General Synod (CoGS).
Encompassing the Anglican Church of Canada’s General Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) National Convention, the Assembly was originally scheduled for July 2022. Due to concerns over travel amid an upsurge in COVID-19 cases, the Assembly Planning Committee on Feb. 18 decided against holding an in-person event that summer.
At its subsequent March meeting, CoGS passed a resolution for the next session of General Synod to take place in 2023, with the hope for it to be concurrent with an Assembly meeting with the ELCIC and for the Assembly Committee to decide the time. CoGS also resolved for the following session of General Synod to take place in 2025.
Perry said the original site, the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, was unable to host the Assembly in summer 2023 and credited event planner Angela Chorney with helping organizers find an alternative venue
