I have about 50 new twins looking for Canadian conferences and councils who would be willing to support them spiritually and materially through twinning.
Have you been considering twinning as a work of your conference or council?
What would motivate your conference to join us in twinning?
How can we convince you?
If you have any questions, please write them in our blog and we will answer them. Other conferences may have the same questions.
If your conference is already twin and you wish to share your experience with us, please write them here, you might convince other to join the wonderful work of twinning.

It is important that all conferences and councils obtain a Business Number from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Someone from CRA has been invited to give a presentation at our AGA in June, in Toronto.
Extract from Revenue Canada website: Under no circumstances should a registered charity lend its registration number to another organization for receipting purposes. A registered charity is responsible for all tax receipts issued under its name and number and must account for the corresponding donations on its annual information return. A charity that lends its registration number risks losing its charitable registration.
The parish, which your conference is attached to, cannot issue receipts for donations to the conference. The conference should have its own registration number.
