Interim Policies Approved for Canada

After extensive discussion of Canada National Conference recommendations, interim policies regarding same-gender marriage and ordination have been approved by the Council of Twelve and the First Presidency for Canada only.

Policies were effective June 1, 2013, and will be evaluated after two years to determine if any updates or revisions are needed to address questions not previously anticipated.

These policies have been distributed to field officers for the purpose of training local leaders for implementation. Please contact your pastor or mission center president for more information on these policies.
