The Episcopal Assembly of North and Central America, founded in 2010, consists of all the active Orthodox bishops of North and Central America, representing multiple jurisdictions.

The Episcopal Assembly of North and Central America is one of several such bodies around the world which operate in the so-called "diaspora."
