June 15th – COVID-19 Guidelines Update – PLEASE READ

General Ontario Conference - June 15th, 2022

Dear Ontario Conference Pastors, Head Elders, Clerks, and Communication Leaders:

We want to thank you for your diligent efforts during the pandemic.

The Conference feels it is now time to resume church potlucks safely.

  • Foods from households where one or more persons are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or where persons have tested positive should not be brought to the potluck, nor should the family attend.
  • We discourage a lot of hand-to-food contacts; try to offer individually packaged items if possible.

It is important to utilize a team of servers to serve the food to attendees. We recommend that these persons:

  • Should be wearing masks and gloves.
  • Hold a current Food Handlers Certificate.

Please have plenty of hand sanitizer available and encourage everyone to sanitize their hands before eating or touching food.  Physical distancing should continue to be respected.

Concerning foot washing, more information will be forthcoming.

As you connect like Jesus, may grace and blessings be in your path,


  • Mansfield Edwards (President)
  • Jakov Bibulovic (Executive Secretary)
  • Virene Meikle (Treasurer)


First-Ever Hybrid GC Session

General Ontario Conference - June 6th, 2022

Attending the General Conference (GC) Session has been a family affair from my earliest childhood. A treasured family picture is of me, my mom and dad proudly representing Cote d’Ivoire in the parade of nations. My dad was working as treasurer of what was then called the Ivory Coast Mission. This year is the first time in a while that I haven’t attended in person. However, thanks to the amazing technology employed by the GC team, I’ve been able to feel a part of the 61st GC Session from home. As GC Undersecretary Moise J. F. Hensley Moorooven explained on day 1, as the first-ever hybrid GC session, it’s a history-making moment. It’s been amazing to see how the virtual space can give people all over the world access to educational business meetings, powerful worship services and incredible music from international artists. It has also added unique elements, like regular ANN recaps, virtual exhibit halls, networking lounges, Kahoot games with prizes and much more. If you haven’t gotten a chance to connect yet, it’s not too late!

Here are some important links for the GC, which is continuing through to this Sabbath, June 11.

Constituency Meeting Postponement

General Ontario Conference - April 21st, 2022

Dear Ontario Conference Family:

We hope that you and your loved ones are doing well and continue to experience God’s protection. We would like to inform you of the postponement of the Ontario Conference’s 35th Quinquennial Constituency Session. Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, the Ontario Conference Board of Directors had scheduled it to take place during the 2022 calendar year. However, in collaboration with the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada's (SDACC’s) administration, which supervises the Canadian conferences’ sessions, the Ontario Conference Board of Directors voted to accept the adjustment in the schedule for the 35th Quinquennial Ontario Conference Constituency Session to be held on June 2-4, 2023. Please read the Seventh-day Adventist Church letter on this matter below. This letter was shared with our pastors to be read to the congregations last Sabbath.

Blessings on you and your ministry,
Ontario Conference Administration

Mar 23rd – COVID-19 Guidelines Update – PLEASE READ

General Ontario Conference - March 23rd, 2022

Dear Ontario Conference Pastors, Head Elders, Clerks, and Communication Leaders:

Our provincial government believes that key public health and health system indicators continue to remain stable or are showing improvements and, as such, is cautiously and gradually easing public health and workplace safety measures. As a result, on March 21, 2022, general masking requirements were lifted in most indoor settings, including places of worship.

Notwithstanding, the Ontario Conference believes that physical distancing and community masking have improved public health, reduced COVID cases and helped lower incidences of the flu and other respiratory viruses. While not mandated, the Ontario Conference strongly recommends that members continue to be encouraged to physically distance themselves and wear their masks while in our spaces.

As we press forward, please exercise great care and understanding as many members and guests may be uncomfortable being around and directly interacting with unmasked persons. It is crucial that you, with your church board, determine the best way to relax the masking requirement for your local congregation and, based on your local context and member needs and desires, may choose to keep the mask requirement in place. Please note that Landlords may ask those worshiping in rented spaces to keep in force the masking mandate.

Members and guests should continue to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms and be asked not to enter the building should they be experiencing any of the COVID-19 indicators. Local churches may, at their discretion, continue to ask pre-screening questions as part of their safety protocols. The Ontario Conference will maintain the requirement that each church keeps a public health and safety plan in place.

All other guidelines will remain as the Ontario Conference continues to monitor the landscape and map out how we will further cautiously and gradually ease our public health safety measures.

May the God of all hope and comfort abide with you as you carry out His mission, remain committed to connecting with and like Jesus.


  • Mansfield Edwards (President)
  • Jakov Bibulovic (Executive Secretary)
  • Virene Meikle (Treasurer)

Mar 10th – COVID-19 Guidelines Update – PLEASE READ

General Ontario Conference - March 10th, 2022

Dear Ontario Conference Pastors, Head Elders, Clerks, and Communication Leaders:

As the Province continues to move towards living with and managing COVID-19, the Ontario Conference remains committed to prayerfully considering our organization’s policies, procedures, and operations and issuing guidelines that increasingly relax restrictions while emphasizing public health and safety.

Capacity limits:

  • The Ontario Conference at this time will lift all capacity limit restrictions. However, members are to be encouraged to be mindful of physical distancing.

Meals and Social Gatherings:

  • Group meals and social gatherings may continue with no capacity restrictions, and each family bringing their own food eating in their bubble (potlucks remain suspended for just a little longer). *Guidelines specific to potlucks will be forthcoming.

Health Screening

  • Individuals should continue to screen themselves for COVID-19 before entering the premises, and anyone experiencing symptoms should not enter the premises.


  • Any person in the indoor area of the premises must wear a mask or face covering that covers their mouth, nose and chin during any period when they are in an indoor space.
    *Further guidelines specific to mask-wearing will be forthcoming.

Other Guidance

  • Baptism and Communion - The 2nd quarter will bring relaxed restrictions in these areas; for the time being, please follow the previous guidance on these matters.
  • Cleaning, Sanitizing and Ventilation - Irrespective of COVID-19, we must maintain a high level of cleaning and sanitizing. It is equally important to remain committed to proper HVAC maintenance, the use of enhanced filters, and bringing as much fresh air into the building as possible.

While the Ontario Conference will continue not to require proof of vaccination, those worshiping in rented facilities should note that some of our Landlords may continue to mandate that all persons entering their location be immunized, including our worshipers.
As we move rapidly toward the light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel, may we remain focused on the Light of the World and His mission, providing spiritual leadership and preparing ourselves, families and churches for His imminent return.
*You may expect further guidelines by or before the end of March 2022

  • Jakov Bibulovic (Executive Secretary)
