    Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone else is from Ontario Canada and can verify everything regarding ordinations is valid or who to contact to find out? Thanks.

    try asking Amy Long at the California ULC site

    unless I'm wrong, having a Canadian site and ordaining Canadians  is a step towards ULC putting down roots here which is a long process.

    currently being a Canadian ULC minister lets you;
    perform weddings in the US

    but not here in Ontario
    because, Universal Life Church is an American church and Ontario law is strict on who can perform weddings and such, deeming it not for international churches to do so.

    Hey Tom,

    How did it go?  I'm in Nova Scotia and looking to find some precedent here in Canada I can use to help move it forward.  If it were recognized in another Canadian Province it would definitely go a long way.
