The Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga (UCM) is a religious community of individuals who are guided by compassion, reason and love on an individual search for truth and meaning.
We are a growing and diverse congregation. We find meaning and value in the rich and deep history of Unitarianism because our religious tradition draws inspiration from many sources including the wisdom of the world's faith traditions, nature, science, and contemporary thought.
The diversity of our religious beliefs resonates with the multicultural community in which we are located. UCM serves Peel (Brampton, Mississauga), Halton (Oakville, Burlington and Milton) and Etobicoke.
