Canada: Joint Assembly approves declaration

Anglican-Lutheran Joint Assembly on July 5th, 2013 embraced a different approach to mining companies in Canada and around the world calling for “responsible resource extraction” involving "Canadian companies in Canada and overseas", "advocate(d) for responsible and ethical investment in both Canada and around the world.” and committed churches to support indigenous communities in Canada and abroad. 

On the issue of homelessness, the declaration commits the two churches to “advocate for renewed federal funding” and for an “integrated national collaborative strategy and greater accountability on the part of provinces and municipalities” in addressing homelessness and substandard housing"
