Remit Voting Results

From September 2019 through March 2020, each of the 45 presbyteries in the Presbyterian Church in Canada will be voting on the two remits concerning same-sex marriage and ordination. If a majority of the 45 presbyteries approve, and that majority consists of at least half of the combined total of the constituent members on the rolls of presbyteries, then the remits will go to next year’s General Assembly, which is free to vote “Yes” or “No”. The dates, results, and numbers below were supplied to us by members of the courts. We are striving to be as accurate as possible and to keep up with the results. Numbers in the “Roll” column are approximate, not official. If you have information about your Presbytery that has not yet been updated, email Andy Cornell <amcpastor1@gmail.com> (Executive Director).
