Election resource identifies political priorities for Anglicans

Just in time for the 2015 federal election, a new non-partisan resource offers support for Canadian Anglicans to engage with parties and candidates on a range of vital issues rooted in shared prosperity and protecting the most vulnerable members of society.

Entitled Compassion, Justice and Reason: An Anglican Approach for Election 2015, the free downloadable resource consists of double-sided sheets on 10 different justice issues highlighted by the Anglican Church of Canada and rooted in the Marks of Mission.

Among the issues highlighted in the election resource are:

  • Child poverty;
  • Overseas development assistance;
  • Peace in the Middle East;
  • Refugees;
  • Caring for creation;
  • Interfaith inclusion;
  • Justice and corrections;
  • Reconciliation;
  • Homelessness and affordable housing; and
  • Intergenerational inequalities

You can view or download the resource here.
