The Board of World Mission was established by General Council in 1960 and became operational 1 January, 1962; the Board brought together the Board of Overseas Missions and the Overseas Missions Committee of the Woman's Missionary Society, thereby becoming the sole authority for mission work outside of Canada and Bermuda. The Board was superseded in 1972 by the Division of World Outreach.
This material forms part of the General Council program of the United Church of Canada Archives.
