Come to Canadian Yearly Meeting 2022
Canadian Yearly Meeting 2022 will be happening online from August 7-13 and registration is now open! There is no closing date for adult registration, but early registration will help with planning. If you would like to participate in the Children & Youth Program or Worship Sharing in small groups, please register before Sunday July 24th.
What is Yearly Meeting?
Canadian Yearly Meeting (CYM) is a gathering once a year for all Canadian Quakers. Its Business Meetings are the main decision-making body of Quakers in Canada.
Who can attend?
The gathering might be for Canadian Quakers, but Quaker visitors from outside Canada are also welcome – as are those new to the Quaker ways, or those who are just curious. There will be extra info, support, and even a buddy system available for newcomers who would like such things. (Quiet lurkers are also welcome to dip a toe in!)
What happens at Yearly Meeting?
Besides business and committee meetings, there’s also lots of time for fun and games, socializing, and sessions focusing on spiritual development, social justice, and Quaker history.
Key events and speakers are highlighted on the CYM 2022 homepage, with more info to come. Those who register get immediate access to the current detailed schedule.
What does it cost to attend?
There are considerable costs to run Yearly Meeting in Session, even as an online event. We are requesting a donation/registration fee of $50 per person, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. See the Payment for CYM 2022 page for details and payment methods.
More and new information – from details of fun events and or business documents – will be posted to the CYM 2022 site from now ’til the end of the gathering.
