Role of the Chaplain

In Canada the term chaplain is used interchangeably for both ordained and the laity.   Through specialized training and education in theology and clinical practice, chaplains provide pastoral and spiritual care to individuals, their families and staff in a wide variety of institutional settings (e.g. hospitals, prisons, armed forces, extended care centres and schools).
