Facility Rentals

As per the Anglican Church of Canada Act (Ontario) S.O. (1979), c.46, and Canon 6, all recurring facility rentals by outside-user groups must be reviewed by the Trusts Committee and approved by Diocesan Council. An outside-user group might be defined as any group or individual who conducts activities on church property that would not be included in the parish’s annual report to Vestry about its Ministry & Mission.

Only the Diocesan License Agreement and Lease Agreement are to be used; both Agreements are available for download from the navigation menu at left. Neither document is to be altered in any way. These Agreements must be approved by Diocesan Council prior to execution by the Parish and occupancy by the Tenant/Licensee. Renewals must also be approved through the same process.

The License Agreement is for the rental of church space.

The Lease Agreement is for the rental of residential property.

The following documentation must be submitted at least one (1) week in advance of the scheduled monthly meeting date of the Trusts Committee. Please send all documents to Pamela Dwerryhouse, Property Resources Assistant.

  1. Unsigned License Agreement or Lease Agreement;
  2. Certificate of Insurance from the Licensee or Lessee;
  3. Letter of support from the Area Bishop (for first-time approvals only);
  4. For Lease Agreements only, a certified Vestry motion approving the rental.
