Did you know SCM Canada is working towards becoming an official Affirming Ministry through Affirm United/S’affirmer Ensemble?
Part of this process is getting a sense of our organization’s environment since 1921. So, we’re reaching out to past and present SCMers and asking them to share their stories using this anonymous online forum.

Do you have a wonderful memory of inclusion or a painful memory of exclusion? We invite you to share with us, we are here to listen.

This forum is for current and past members of the Student Christian Movement of Canada, and Canadian members of the World Student Christian Federation.As part of the “Affirm United/S’affirmer Ensemble” process we are taking a look at our history as a social justice organization. To celebrate where we have been salt and light, and to mourn and repent where we have failed those in our community and broader national landscape who identify as LGBTQ2IA*.

Affirm United/S’affirmer Ensemble is a church network that looks to promote greater awareness of sexual orientation and gender identity issues. It works to end discrimination against people in church, society and our organizations.
It looks to help people of all sexual orientations and gender identities find support and community within the United Church. SCM Canada will be the first ecumenical body to complete this process with AUSE.
