Administrative history

The Student Christian Movement of Canada was created in 1921 by merging university student Christian clubs and associations with YMCA and YWCA student departments. A Student Christian Movement “study group” was organized at UBC in 1922, and by 1926 had been formally established as an official branch of the Canadian SCM. The SCM was dedicated to discussing economic, social, and political issues from a Christian perspective. The UBC branch hosted several public discussions and other events on campus and hosted seminars and conferences for the regional and national SCM. In 1974, the UBC SCM amalgamated with the Anglican-United Campus Ministry to form the Cooperative Christian Campus Ministry (CCCM) at UBC. In 1979, UBC SCM left the CCCM – it continued to operate as an active student organization until at least 1993.
