Social justice work at Toronto Conference was the responsibility of particular Conference Committees, including Church in Society and World Affairs (previously World Outreach) and their subcommittees. Conference Minister of Christian Development supported the work relating to social justice at the Conference level in 1988. In 1998, a new position of Conference Minister for Social Justice and Ethnic Ministries took on this work. Following the reorganization of Toronto Conference in 2009, a new position of Social Justice Animator was created.
