When you study the
history of Canada you can't help but be struck on how it was the
missionaries who went out into the country to provide both churches
and schools and through that work helped to establish what are now
our towns and cities. The ministers and missionaries
thus contributed in a major way to the building of Canada and
through this section we hope to show some of their work.
Most of our information comes from
antiquarian resources but we'd be more than happy for any
contributions from our visitors in text, pictures or videos to add
to the site.
