Remit Town Hall Information Session

Town Hall Info Session

Join us on Tuesday, September 19 starting at 6 p.m. for our town hall information session, when we will gather on Zoom with our friends from Shining Waters Regional Council to review and discuss the remit to remove structural barriers to developing and sustaining an autonomous Indigenous Church.

Canadian Shield members will be voting on this remit at our November regional meeting.

This is a Category 3 Remit, and so requires a vote by every regional council and each pastoral charge’s governing body. If a regional council or a pastoral charge does not register a vote, that is considered a vote against the proposal.

There is one question to be voted on, as follows:

Does the regional council agree to amend the Basis of Union to reflect:

  1. That The United Church of Canada will be organized as follows (1) a three-council structure, consisting of communities of faith, regional councils and a Denominational Council*; and (2) an autonomous National Indigenous Organization; and
  2. That once the new autonomous National Indigenous Organization is established within The United Church of Canada, it will have its own mechanisms to make any future changes to its structure and processes, and, therefore will not be subject to the remit process under section 7.4.1 of the Basis of Union**; and
  3. The changes required for the establishment of the autonomous National Indigenous Organization.
