Welcome to the Social Justice Network of the Ontario Regional Councils (SJNORC)

The predecessor of SJNOR was formed many years ago to coordinate the dialogue between the United Church and Queen’s Park on social justice issues. The network developed into a useful forum for the exchange of information on social justice ministries across the province while continuing its traditional role as a vehicle for coordinating policy-dialogue with the provincial government.

SJNOR is governed through a covenant among the sponsoring Regional Councils. Each Regional Council nominates two members to SJNOR, of which one is typically a volunteer and the other a member of staff. General Council Office staff in the Division of Church in Mission, staff from KAIROS, and by the United Church representatives to the Interfaith Social Assistance Reform Council (ISARC) also participate. The network meets at least twice annually in person or online.
