Diocese of Brandon
The Diocese of Brandon covers approximately 100,000 square miles from the far north to the far south in western Manitoba along the Saskatchewan border; has many isolated communities especially in the north where many of the congregations and clergy are aboriginal.
The Deanery of Essex has 28 churches in Windsor, Ontario (2006 pop. 323,342) and the surrounding area. Although the Diocese of Brandon has far more territory than the Deanery of Essex, Brandon and Essex have relatively the same number of parishes and clergy.
