Please note that we are not currently receiving new applications for admission ministry.

The United Church of Canada, as a united and uniting denomination, welcomes ministry leadership from other recognized global ecumenical Christian denominations who feel called to serve in the United Church.

Discernment and Process

If you are considering ministry in The United Church of Canada, please take the time to get to know us.


Due to an abundance of qualified ministers approved by The United Church of Canada currently seeking calls, the Board of Vocation is not currently receiving new applications. Please check this website periodically to know when the process resumes.


As you review the process and decide on a potential future serving in ministry with the United Church, it is extremely important to understand that immigration requirements are separate from church processes. Applicants are advised that the process will take a significant period of time to meet both immigration and church requirements.


If you have questions please contact Office of Vocation.
