Founded in 1829, The United Church Observer is the oldest continuously published magazine in North America and the second oldest in the English speaking world. It is known for its journalistic excellence and its articles link, strengthen and encourage United Church families across the country.  In 1986 The Observer became  independently incorporated. It now sets its own editorial policies and is overseen by its own board of directors. Only seven percent of its funding comes from the United Church’s General Council, with the rest coming from individual subscriptions, newsstand purchases, the Friends of the Observer Fund and government grants. The Observer’s financial and legal independence permits the publication to comment freely on matters within and outside The United Church of Canada.
