More on The Federation of Anglican Churches
in the Americas

The Federation of Anglican Churches in the Americas has their web site up now.

I found this page of their articles the most interesting. There they list the following among their “tasks”:

Furthering mutual understanding of its member Provinces, Jurisdictions and Ministries with a view to eventual union when and if deemed practical.

Pursuing a communal and charitable relationship with the world-wide Anglican Communion.

Clearly they are seeking more unity beyond being a federation of continuing jurisdictions. And that’s reflected in Article 11. There it’s clear there’s a great deal of intercommunion among federation members, which to date are the AMiA, the REC, and the APA.

+Ray Sutton of the REC is listed as a contact. He’s been prominent in North American orthodox Anglican ecumenical efforts and happens to be the bishop who confirmed me.
