Job Number: 
Opening/Closing Date: 
July 11, 2017 to August 22, 2017
Anticipated Start Date: 
October 2, 2017

The Boundaries Commission will have the authority to determine the number and boundaries of the future regions of The United Church of Canada that would form part of the three-council model. We are seeking well-respected church leaders with relevant expertise and exceptional listening and analysis skills to make these determinations. If possible, the membership will include at least one former Moderator and some of the younger leaders in the church.

This commission will meet as needed in person and by teleconference or video conference in order to produce an interim report by January 10, 2018, and a final report by March 15, 2018. Members of the commission should be prepared to make a significant commitment of their time in October and November. A meeting of the whole commission will be set as soon as possible in October. 

Owing to the short timeline for completing this work, required consultation and meeting dates will be arranged in advance and communicated to all nominees, as soon as known, prior to the commission’s appointment.
