The Most Rev. Linda Nicholls, Archbishop and Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, informed the Church of her intention to retire in September this year.

"In the fall of 2024 I will complete thirty-nine years of ordained ministry in the Anglican Church of Canada.   Although it had been my hope to continue until General Synod 2025, I will also reach our mandatory retirement age.   I have therefore written to the Senior Metropolitan, Archbishop Anne Germond, to offer my resignation as of September 15, 2024", says Primate Nicholls in her letter issued on April 9. 

Archbishop Nicholls had served as a suffragan bishop of the Diocese of Toronto, and then as the diocesan bishop of the Diocese of Huron before she was elected Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada in 2019. 

In her letter, she thanks for the privilege of serving our beloved church: "Thank you for your prayers, care and support trough the good times and the difficult ones".
