The work of the ecumenical dialogues and interfaith conversations is documented in the agreed statements and reports that they issue. The statements and reports represent the views of the participants.

Although the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) is represented on these dialogues and conversations, the texts have not been officially endorsed by the CCCB nor do they necessarily have the approval of the Bishops of Canada or of the other participant churches or groups.

These statements and reports are posted on the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism website in order to make public the work of the dialogues and conversations, and to assist pastors, theologians and other members of the faithful in studying them and in preparing reflections. Any comments on the texts would be welcomed by the CCCB Episcopal Commission for Christian Unity / Religious Relations with the Jews / Interfaith Dialogue.

The colours of the web site represent the official heraldic insignia of Bishops.
