The votes have now been counted! Remit 1: Establishing an Autonomous National Indigenous Organization has passed. What happens now? As is the case with all Category 3 Remits, if a remit has been approved by a majority of all the regional councils, the General Council must decide to enact it. The decision on enacting the remit will take place at the Annual Meeting of General Council, on October 19, 2024. When the remit has been enacted, the change will be included in the next edition of The Manual. (The process for remits is outlined in the United Church Manual, in section F, on pages 108-111.)

On the General Council 44 website, you can find more detailed information about the remit result, as well as a statement from the National Indigenous Council in response to the vote results.
