New Missal

WIll the new missal now use the NRSVce instead of the NAS translation for readings?

The new English translation of the Roman Missal has nothing to do with the Lectionary. The Missal is for all English speaking countries, the NAB translation of the Lectionary is specific to the US, so, no that won’t change.

What is the Lectionary in Canada?

It’s the NRSV, but a revised version of it since the NRSV as translated is forbidden for use in Liturgy. We’ve had the revised Lectionary since Pentecost 2009.
