Ulc Status In Canada?

Recommended Posts

I am moving to Canada as a Permanent Resident in the near future and I am wondering if I will still be ordained in Canada or if something special would have to occur to keep my status as an ordained minister.

Thank you for your time.

Blessing to All

You will still be ordained.

but....

Each province has their own rules/regulations and I don't believe any of them will recognize the ordainment.

Based on the info I have received over the years Sirius is correct. You will be able to do everything except solemnize the legal portion of a wedding.

So, what does someone do to gain the ability to perform the legal side of Marriages? That is a staple of my ministry.

Thank you for your reply. I will have to look into this. *sigh*

You will have to contact your province to get the ULC approved as a denom, which as I understand it, is not an easy task.

Couldn't I very well join an already established religious organization and branch off? That is what I am being told by and offered by a Minister in Halifax, NS, who runs the MCC (gay friendly church).

Only if that organizations is approved by the providence and of course you meet that organizations criteria for being a minister.

I did a little research with my Father-in-Law (Canadian; retired CBSA Director of Import/Exports) and he told me that it is a few hoops, but, not impossible. Just annoying. Sounds like a challenge, but, I am up to it. :)
