Members of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) include all diocesan Bishops in Canada and those equivalent to them in law, and all Coadjutor Bishops and Auxiliary Bishops. Also included are Titular Bishops of any rite within the Catholic Church who exercise a special office in Canada that has been assigned to them by the Holy See or by the CCCB.
A bishop is given the title of Bishop emeritus after his resignation from office is accepted by the Holy Father. These Bishops, now retired, are no longer members of the CCCB, but may still participate at the CCCB Plenary Assemblies as consultants.
At least 10 Canadian Bishops are exercising, or have exercised, their episcopal ministry outside of Canada. They are not members of the CCCB.
