I am surprised no one has mentioned what is going on in Canada.
Maybe they have but I missed it. So here are some of the facts as I know them. Ontario Only.
Sault St. Marie had their six congregations whittled down to two. All their Kingdom Halls were sold or is up for sell and a new bigger was built. From what I have heard it was more people moving away that caused this. Probably no work.
Major re-org of all territories in Ontario.
In Eastern Ontario the following congregations are gone. May be more, but this is what I know so far.
Ingleside (Hall to be sold)
Cornwall (French) – to be sent to English congregation.
Meadowlands (Ottawa) – Thorn in the side of the WT forever. It has now been taken care of. LOL.
Blossom Park (Ottawa)
Some publishers who used to drive 10 minutes to their Hall, now have to drive 30 – 45 minutes. Not sure how that will go over.
Cedarhill (Ottawa) has now 187 publishers. Wow!!!
Rideau (Ottawa) has 140 publishers.
We used to split at about 120 publishers.
There are really no Kingdom Halls to sell in Ottawa as they were sold years back to build the Assembly/Kingdom Hall building. They were offered 25 million for it years back. Not sure how much they can get for it now, as there is a lot of mold.
They were going to renovate an old Post Office in Vanier (Ottawa) to make a very big Hall, but after taking all the donations and money, they shelved the project. Works every time.
My feeling is that the demographics are changing and even though the rejigging has caused some congregations to be bursting at the seams, in time they will just get smaller. Of course all of these changes are moot if someone does not want to drive 30 minutes, and they go where they want.
