Directory Privacy

Provincial and federal legislation has highlighted the need for society to safeguard the privacy and personal information of its members. Modern technology and increasingly easy access to information have resulted in numerous abuses, some of which can result in serious harm.

BC Conference is committed to reducing any potential harm to its members by safeguarding how personal information is gathered, stored and distributed.

At the same time, BC Conference is also committed to ensuring its members can communicate quickly and easily with one another for work and fellowship.

This Directory honours both of these commitments. It attempts to be as comprehensive as possible so the breadth of the United Church in BC can recognize itself as one body united in Christ. At the same time, it contains little or no personal information as defined by the legislation.

In order to further safeguard our members, BC Conference asks all the recipients of the Directory to honour the following restrictions:

Please do not copy or further distribute this Directory. Requests for copies, including an electronic file for a PDA, should be made to the Conference office.

Please do not use the information contained in the Directory for any purpose other than the work and fellowship of the church. It should not be used for personal, commercial, political or any other non-church purpose.

Finally, if you feel the information contained in this Directory is "personal" and you do not want it printed in future editions, please contact the Conference office; it will be removed. Our goal is to provide a helpful resource for the church, but not at the expense of increasing risk for anyone.
