The ACNA allows individual dioceses to determine if they will ordain women as deacons and priests. Women bishops are prohibited completely.
Mmmm...what it has done with these provisional Constitution and Canons is to specify that it won't interfere with the current practice of its member dioceses, and institutions ministry partners in regards to the issue of the ordination of women. What the canons do not say (I believe) is whether the ministry of said women (if any) will be accepted or allowed Province-wide. Remember, that unlike earlier Continuing Anglican ecclesial bodies, ACNA is not primarily composed of Evangelicals or Anglo-Catholics, but a mixture of both, and there are a number of Anglican bodies that are part of ACNA who see the ordained ministry of women as a living out of the fullness of the baptismal covenant...the "in Christ there is no East or West, male or female, Greek or Jew, master or slave" (loose paraphrase here), but then they tend to have a "low" doctrine of Church and Sacrament,
