Diocesan Council is elected by Synod to work closely with the Bishop in managing and administering the temporal affairs of the Diocese. Council has the power of Synod when Synod is not in session. It seeks and takes the direction of Synod, and implements Synod's decisions.

Council has an inter-dependent, supportive and harmonious relationship with the Bishop in all things. Council's focus is in four main areas: providing support and advice to the bishop, playing a leadership and coordination role in the ministry, mission and programs of the diocese, encouraging and communicating with parishes, and supporting the work of the Anglican Church in Canada and around the world.
