The changing place of legacy churches in Canada requires innovative new approaches to ministry and, at the same time, careful stewardship of assets no longer required for ministry.
In 2017, Toronto United Church Council was contracted to act as interim property management agent for Toronto Conference. This arrangement was extended for two years with Shining Waters Regional Council.
Duties include the management and supervision of surplus properties awaiting sale, acting as agent for the sale of properties, as well as negotiating the disposition of cemeteries that may be associated with such properties.
Currently, TUCC has oversight of eight properties formerly associated with Toronto Conference and now part of two regional council areas.
