Canadian Unitarian Council & UU Connections
Canadian Unitarian Council (CUC)
The Canadian Unitarian Council (CUC) is the national Unitarian Universalist (UU) body that supports Canadian Unitarian Universalist congregations and facilitates Unitarian Universalists from across Canada in expanding their UU roots and connecting with each other.
Check out the Canadian Unitarian Council website for information about the CUC plus many Unitarian Universalist resources & links! To see a complete listing of Canadian Unitarian Universalist congregations, go to the CUC's Congregations page.
Westwood & the CUC
Westwood is a member of the Canadian Unitarian Council (CUC). The CUC holds an Annual Conference and Meeting in May. Westwood sends two delegates to represent Westwood in the votes and discussions held at the business meeting. Westwood's Social Justice Committee discusses and makes recommendations to Westwood's delegates on the social justice resolutions presented at the meeting.
Westwood is part of the CUC Western Region. The Western Regional Fall Gathering is held annually in October.
There is often funding available or Westwoodian carpooling potential for CUC events. Check with the Board or Reverend Anne for information if you're interested in attending.
Westwood Social Justice Committee members are expected to annually renew their membership to Canadian Unitarians for Social Justice (CUSJ). This is a nationwide group, affiliated with but separate from the Canadian Unitarian Council which applies Unitarian principles through advocacy, lobbying, and education. CUSJ has a blog.
