- CanUUdle XVIII

CanUUdle is the annual national conference for Canadian UU youth (14-20) and their adult advisors (25+). It’s a beautiful weekend where youth and adults create an amazing community, worship together, grow as spiritual beings and join in multigen activities. CanUUdle attendees stay overnight at the First Unitarian Congregation of Hamilton from Friday to Monday.

In 2018, CanUUdle takes place at the same time as the CUC Conference, with some shared and some separate events. Youth will join the adults and children for multigen time at the CUC Conference (Sunday), and with young adults for the bridging dinner and worship (Saturday evening).

Please explore the CanUUdle section of this website - it contains lots of useful information about what happens at CanUUdle, our planning team, multigenerational and bridging events, and how we maintain a healthy and safe community. If you're new to CanUUdle or youth cons, find out more here!
