From 1893 until 1965 the General Synod normally met every three years (triennially) with only a few exceptions.  There was a six year gap between the 2nd (1896) and 3rd (1902) General Synods and a four year gap between the 6th (1911) and 7th (1915) caused by the outbreak of World War I.  There was a four year gap between the 11th (1927) and the 12th (1931) due to the financial pressures of the Depression and another 6 year gap between the 14th (1937) and 15th (1943) due to the outbreak of World War II.  In 1955 the name of the Church was officially changed from “Church of England in Canada” to “Anglican Church of Canada”.

There was a four year gap between the 19th General Synod in 1955 and the 20th in 1959.  Between 1965 (22nd General Synod) and 1977 (28th) General Synod met every two years (biennially) before returning to a three year cycle beginning with the 29th meeting in 1980.
