CUC 50th Anniversary

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.

CUC Youth

CUC Youth Ministry serves teens and young adults ages 14 – 20. It provides opportunities for youth to go deeper in their spiritual and ethical development, to develop leadership skills, and to make broader connections with youth and youth advisors nation-wide.

Ariel Hunt-Brondwin is the CUC staff member who focuses on Youth and Young Adult Ministry Development.

Youth events include Youth Con at Regional Gatherings, CanUUdle at the CUC Annual Conference and Meeting, and other interesting workshops throughout the year. Youth Connect through Facebook or through your choice of email listserves.

CUC Children

CUC events like the Annual Conference and Meeting or Regional Fall Gatherings have great children’s programs!

Take a closer look at the event information to see what they have to offer kids and junior youth.

Additional child care during these events is available at reasonable rates.
