A New Look for GC44

Welcome to Calgary, Alberta, the destination for commissioners and others who will be attending the 44th General Council of The United Church of Canada.

From July 21 to July 25, 2021, over 300 commissioners and invited guests will call the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre home.

This is the first time we are using a convention centre to host the meeting. As we continue to move in the direction of a digital meeting, our technology requirements continue to grow. We have changed our business process, resulting in the need for more small meeting spaces, something difficult to achieve on a college/university campus. And, the needs of our commissioners are changing with greater challenges for accessibility, which campus dorms struggle to meet.

The convention centre is located within easy walking distance of the hotels that will accommodate commissioners, guests, and staff.

Calgary offers a host of cultural, historical, and shopping opportunities—many steps from our destination. Check out the Tourism Calgary website for more information.
