Religion


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.
