In February 2015, the Anglican Diocese of Montreal hired a diocesan-sponsored clergyperson to focus exclusively on Indigenous ministries. Originally from the northern Quebec community of Kuujjuarapik in the Diocese of the Arctic, the Rev. Annie Ittoshat brings a strong cultural and professional background to her position as Aboriginal Community Minister. Her newly-created position offers a particular focus on ministry to the large population of Inuit in Montreal who have come from northern communities for employment opportunities, social services, or to seek medical treatment.

St John’s College today welcomed a mid-year intake of students – and formally launched a pilot leadership development programme for its new Tikanga Maori students.
The five new students welcomed today have set sail on a 19-week (one semester) leadership development programme, devised and overseen by the Dean of Tikanga Maori, Rev Katene Eruera.
The idea is that once they’ve completed that, they’ll continue with an academic programme. Most of the new students are heading down the ordination track.
