The Anglican Church of Canada (ACC or ACoC) is the Province of the Anglican Communion in Canada.〔(Anglican Communion Provincial Directory )〕 The official French name is l'Église anglicane du Canada.〔(Anglican Church of Canada Handbook )〕 In 2007, the Anglican Church counted 545,957 members on parish rolls in 1,676 parishes and 2,792 congregations.〔(FAQ - Number of Canadian Anglicans, Parishes and Congregations )〕 The 2011 Canadian Census counted 1,631,845 self-identified Anglicans (5 percent of the total Canadian population), making the Anglican Church the third largest Canadian church after the Roman Catholic Church and the United Church of Canada.〔(National Household Survey - Religion ) - Statistics Canada. Retrieved 2013-11-04.〕 The Queen of Canada's Canadian Royal Style continues to include the Style ''Defender of the Faith'' (''French'': Défenseur de la Foi) in describing the Monarch's role under the Constitution of Canada, and the Canadian Monarch continues her countenance of two Chapels Royal in the Realm.
Until 1955, the Anglican Church of Canada was known as the Church of England in the Dominion of Canada or simply the Church of England in Canada. In 1977, the church's General Synod adopted l'Église épiscopale du Canada as its French-language name.〔 This name was replaced with the current one, ''l'Église anglicane du Canada'', in 1989; however, the former name is still used in some places along with the new one.
A matter of some confusion for Anglicans elsewhere in the world is that while the Anglican Church of Canada is a province of the Anglican Communion, the Ecclesiastical Province of Canada is merely one of four such ecclesiastical provinces of the Anglican Church of Canada. This confusion is furthered by the fact that Canada has ten civil provinces along with three territories.
In recent years, there have been attempts by splinter groups to incorporate under very similar names. Corporations Canada, the agency of the federal government which has jurisdiction over federally incorporated companies, ruled on 12 September 2005 that a group of dissident Anglicans may not use the name ''Anglican Communion in Canada'', holding that in Canada the term ''Anglican Communion'' is associated only with the Anglican Church of Canada, being the Canadian denomination which belongs to that international body.〔The breakaway group now styles itself as the Anglican Coalition in Canada.
