2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM)
Each year, the Canadian Unitarian Council holds its Annual General Meeting to elect members for the CUC’s Board of Trustees, vote on resolutions, and to attend to the business of the Council.

Presentations at each AGM include:
- Annual General Meeting Minutes
- Annual Meeting Rules of Procedure
- Annual Reports
- Audited Financial Statements
- CUC Resolutions
- Nominating Committee Report
