  2. Fill out a PAR Authorization Form with a cheque marked "VOID".

A short history of the last 35 years since the church issued an apology to Indigenous Peoples for its bulldozing evangelism and dismissal of Indigenous spirituality as a part of the same path to the Creator. Twelve years later, in 1998, the church issued an apology for its participation in the Residential Schools program and the treatment of children in the 15 schools it ran on behalf of the government. The United Church records relating to residential schools have been transferred to the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation in Winnipeg. But there is still much more work to be done.

The United Church is the largest Protestant denomination in Canada with a rich history closely entwined with the development of Canada itself. We believe a United Vision is serving, friendly, flexible, inclusive, welcoming, faithful, compassionate, justice-seeking, caring, peace-seeking, tolerant, and innovative. The vision of the United Church of Canada involves ministry in our own United Churches and in work with partners across the country and around the globe. In the four corners of the United Church crest are symbols, three of which are particularly associated with the three communions, Congregational, Methodist, and Presbyterian, that united to form The United Church of Canada in 1925.
