Every three years Anglican Deacons Canada organizes a national conference by and for deacons. The conference is a wonderful opportunity to meet deacons from across Canada and beyond so we can support one another, make meaningful connections, and learn, worship and celebrate together.
Those exploring a possible call to the diaconate and others (including priests and bishops) who are interested in learning more about the diaconate and strengthening the diakonia of the Church are also most welcome to attend.
Each Triennial Conference is hosted by the deacons of a different Canadian Diocese. A variety of locations for the Triennial Conference are selected over time so that this national gathering can be held in different parts of Canada. The most recent in person triennial conferences were held in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Victoria, British Columbia. In 2021 we held our first virtual triennial conference, after plans to host an in-person event in Hamilton, Ontario had to be changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
