A communiqué drafted on December 4, 2000, at the first meeting of the multilateral conversation between the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC), the Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRC), the Presbyterian Church in Canada (PCC), and the United Church of Canada (UCC). The meeting was held at Waterloo Christian Reformed Church.

The communiqué is not available online, but it included: “recognizing each other as churches in Christ, joined to Christ and to one another through baptism.” The purpose of the conversation was articulated as: “growing in knowledge of our history, worship polity and doctrine; identifying and discussing theological sacramental or practical issues that unite or divide us and; envisioning and proposing to our governing bodies any steps that might lead to fuller expressions of the unity in Christ to which we are called.”
