The '''Orthodox Church in America Archdiocese of Canada''' is an [[diocese|archdiocese]] of the [[Orthodox Church in America]] (OCA). Its territory includes [[parish]]es, [[monastery|monasteries]], and missions located in eight provinces and territories in Canada—Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan, and Yukon. The diocesan center is located in Spencerville, Ontario.
 
==History==
An auxiliary territorial [[See]] of the Diocese of the Aleutians and North America was established in Canada in 1916 with the installation of Bishop [[Alexander (Nemolovsky) of Brussels|Alexander (Nemolovsky)]] as its [[bishop]]. In 1940, the See was elevated to that of a territorial diocese of the Russian Orthodox Greek Catholic Church of North America ([[Metropolia]]). In 1954, the diocese was elevated to that of an archdiocese. In 1970, the Metropolia was granted its [[autocephaly]], with the name Orthodox Church in America, with Canada as an integral Archdiocese.
The current [[Archbishop]] of Ottawa and Canada is the Most Reverend [[Seraphim (Storheim) of Ottawa|Seraphim (Storheim)]]. He was consecrated auxiliary bishop of Edmonton in 1987, and became ruling bishop of the archdiocese in 1990. He was elevated to the rank of archbishop in Spring of 2007.
