The Macedonian Orthodox Diocese of America and Canada is a diocese of the autocephalous Macedonian Orthodox Church. It is currently led by Metropolitan Methodius (Metodij Zlatanov) and has jurisdiction over the parishes and monastic communities of the Macedonian Orthodox Church in the United States and Canada.
Macedonians have been immigrating to North America for over a century, but distinctly Macedonian Orthodox parishes were not founded until the 1960s, when the establishment in Yugoslavia of the Macedonian Orthodox Church prompted Macedonians in the United States and Canada to begin organizing parishes under the jurisdiction of the newly independent church. The Diocese of America and Canada was founded at the third All-Macedonian Council held in Ohrid, in 1967, after which the Macedonian Orthodox Holy Synod elected Metropolitan Cyril (Kiril) of Toronto as ruling hierarch of the new diocese.
After 1987 the Diocese passed back and forth between various administrators and the oversight of Archbishop Stephen (Stefan) of Ohrid, the head of the Macedonian Orthodox Church. In April 2006 Bishop Metodij of Velika was appointed diocesan administrator, later in the year being elected Metropolitan of America and Canada and enthroned on September 2, 2006 in Toronto's Cathedral of St. Clement of Ohrid.
The Diocese of America and Canada today consists of 19 parishes and two monastic communities in the United States as well as nine parishes and one monastic community in Canada. Total of 28 parishes and 2 monasteries. The Bishop’s seat is in Sterling Heights, Michigan.
