The Story of Christianity in Canada

Dive into the rich history of Christianity in Canada. Get to know its key figures as we track the movement from Protestant and Catholic roots to the rapid secularization of recent decades. Deepen your familiarity with church officials like Bp. Louis-Francois LaFleche and Rev. Nathanael Burwash, preachers Henry Alline and Aimee Semple McPherson, Indigenous leaders Joseph Brant and Louis Riel, public intellectuals Egerton Ryerson and George Monro Grant, scholars George Grant and George Rawlyk, literary figures Robertson Davies, Margaret Avison, and Margaret Clarkson, and others. In all this, strengthen your historical insight while exploring the possibility of faithful witness today.
