Administrative history

The Rupert's Land News is the official publication of the Diocese of Rupert's Land, and is published as a section of the Anglican Journal 10 times a year. It was first published in March of 1955 by a group of volunteers supported by the Executive Committee of the Diocese and published by the Missionary Committee. The Rupert's Land News later became the responsibility of the Spiritual Affairs sub – committee of Diocesan Council. Today, the publication is overseen by an Advisory Group that meets monthly to establish policies and to monitor finances. The first editor was The Rev. Maurice Hardman, who over the years has been succeeded by Canon Charles Griggs; Rev. Tony Harwood – Jones; Chris Ladd; Al Hosking; Rev. Bryan Bjerring; Mrs. Dunwoody; Joan Bubbs; Brian Smith; Anita Schmidt; John Caird; and its current editor, Irwin Kroeker. It has won awards over the years including a gold medal for most improved paper.
