As Canadian Unitarian Universalists, we envision a world in which our interdependence calls us to love and justice.
These 5 Aspirations guide us in living out our faith: As Canadian Unitarian Universalists, we are Deeply Connected, Radically Inclusive, Actively Engaged, Theologically Alive, and Spiritually Grounded.
Not only was a new Vision statement approved, a set of new charitable purposes was approved, in compliance with Canada Revenue Agency guidelines:
The Statement of Purpose of the Corporation is to promote Unitarian Universalism, Unitarianism and Universalism, in Canada and internationally, by:
- Affirming and promoting the principles, practices, and traditions of the Unitarian Universalist, Unitarian and Universalist faiths;
- Supporting the development and growth of Unitarian Universalist, Unitarian and Universalist religious communities;
- Nurturing, supporting and enhancing religious communities and other groups to work together on mutual concerns for the benefit of the community; and
- Providing basic necessities of life, including food, clean water, clothing, medical and dental care and supplies, shelter, and education, tuition and school supplies to those in need.
