Process for electing commissioners to the 45th General Council Meeting

The General Council of The United Church of Canada will meet in Calgary in August 2025. Canadian Shield Regional Council may elect 14 commissioners to attend the meeting and serve as members of the General Council for three years, beginning in June 2025. Commissioners will also participate in educational sessions beginning in April 2025.

Please see the position description for GC45 Commissioners (PDF | 2 pages) for further details on what expectations will be required.

After a process of recruitment and discernment, the CSRC Nominations Committee will propose a slate of commissioners that will include:

• At least four ministry personnel, one of whom will be a first alternate in case no candidates for Moderator are nominated;
• At least four lay people, one of whom will be a first alternate in case no candidates for Moderator are nominated;
• At least four people intentionally selected to reflect diversity not otherwise reflected;
• At least one youth or young adult;
• At least two or three additional alternates will be elected.

The deadline to submit your nomination is May 1, 2024. The regional council will vote on the slate of commissioners at our regional meeting being held on May 3 – 5, 2024.

An online meeting may present barriers for some people to serve as commissioners. Canadian Shield Regional Council will do whatever we can to assist in the removal of those barriers.
