The Bylaws of the Armenian Diocese of Canada had received its final form in 1983 as the result of much diligent and meticulous work that lasted almost a decade. In 1983 it was ratified by Catholicos Vasken I of blessed memory and was accepted as the official and legal document of the founding of the Canadian Diocese. It was published in 1985, during the primacy of the late Archbishop Vasken Keshishian.
Since then a number of changes and corrections have been deemed necessary to introduce into the Bylaws particularly due to certain inconsistencies between the Armenian original and the English translation. These changes have been taken into consideration and finalized by the Delegates' Annual Assemblies of 1996 and 1997, and have been ratified by His Holiness Karekin I, the Catholicos, in 1997.
The new version of the Bylaws is now considered to be the only official and legal Bylaws of the Canadian Diocese. We hereby authorize our Church leaders and organizations to be guided solely by the new version of the Bylaws.
