The Anglican Year Book is an annual publication, sold each spring through various Anglican book stores across the country. As has been the pattern in recent years, the 1982 edition consists of five sections. The first 26 pages provide the greatest variety of information, listing officers, staff, and major organizations of the General Synod of the church. Here the reader can find such information as the names of Anglican chaplains attached to the Correctional Services of Canada; the addresses of Anglican book stores throughout Canada; the names, addresses, and ministries of the religious communities that are part of Canadian Anglicanism; and almost anything else one might wish to know about the structure of the church.
The second section deals with the 30 dioceses that make up the Anglican Church of Canada, listing bishops, deans, archdeacons, canons, diocesan staff, and every parish and pastor in all dioceses. Next follows an alphabetic index of all communities served by the Anglican church. The fourth section lists the mailing addresses of all bishops, priests, and deacons in the country. Finally, there is a section of paid advertising, featuring all sorts of companies and services of interest to churches and religious institutions.
