The organization of the Ecclesiastical Province of British Columbia, that had begun with a single diocese with only few parishes, was complete by 1914. Four Dioceses had been established with the prospect of a fifth. The body having the authority over the setting of the Dioceses, diocesan boundaries, and the election of the Metropolitan is the Provincial Synod. The Synod meets regularly every third year not being the year in which there is a regular meeting of General Synod. The time and place are to be decided by the Metropolitan in consultation with the Prolocutor. The reports of the meetings, as adopted starting with the first session (February 18th, 1914, Victoria, B.C.) are recorded in the Journal of the Proceedings of the Ecclesiastical Province of B.C. The matters discussed include the change of the existing boundaries of Dioceses, the appointment of various Committees, reports of these Committees, amendments and revisions to the Constitution and Canons of the Provincial Synod, matters relating to religious education in the church, financial reports, funding issues.
