The Eighth Principle


“We, the member congregations of the Canadian Unitarian Council, covenant to affirm and promote:

Individual and communal action that accountably dismantles racism and systemic barriers to full inclusion in ourselves and our institutions.”


At a historic special meeting on November 27, 2021, Canadian Unitarian Universalists adopted  the eighth Principle. It is a significant milestone, one that marks the first update to our principles since 1985, when the seventh Principle (affirming the interdependent web of all existence) was added.
