Administrative history

Founded 1886 in connection with the Congregational Union of Ontario and Quebec, the Board soon directed its attention to the foreign field, sending its first woman missionary to Angola in 1890. Although foreign mission work continued to claim the greater part of the Board's resources, it also supported numerous home mission undertakings (collecting donations for needy Aboriginal People and settlers on the prairies; welcoming immigrants; assisting new Canadians in building churches), and contributed generously to the home mission schemes of the CanadaCongregational Missionary Society. The Board's main activities included fund raising, missionary education, and supplying woman missionaries for work abroad.
