The Coalition of Celebrant Associations (CoCA) Submission:

As an active member of the CoCA, CCN Inc supported this CoCA submission and in particular has a position that:

  • civil celebrants should uphold the legal definition of marriage and not receive exemptions on religious or conscientious objections grounds, and
  • religious faith should be respected provided its tenets uphold civil and human rights.
