The Committee on Provincial Structures and Mission was formed in 1973 to study possibilities of a new provincial structure in terms of administration, pastoral oversight, finances, independence and boundaries. It was agreed that the task of the Committee was "...to examine the possibility that lies before this Province of bringing the Church more fully alive and trying to reach our potential to work as a self-supporting province". (Minutes, 1st meeting, November 1973). Particular attention was given to providing a stronger role for the Ecclesiastical Province in the areas relating to the provincial government, the ministry of the Church, faith and order, and communication amongst the Dioceses. Salt Associates management firm was commissioned to undertake a study of the planning and implementation of the project. The Rev. Charles R. Wilson, who worked as a consultant with the firm, presented several reports (1975 and 1976) and made recommendations that envisioned four phases of development to carry out the full program (1974 - 1982). The Diocesan Study Committee in the Diocese of Cariboo worked in conjunction with the Provincial Committee as part of an overall provincial effort.
