The Canadian Baptist Historical Society (CBHS) is a community dedicated to discovering, researching, and promoting the story of the Baptist community in Canada. The society is made up of ministers, students, dedicated laypeople, and professional historians. There are many opportunities to contribute to the society by participating in the annual meeting of the society, by becoming a member of the society, and by contributing to upcoming volumes of the Canadian Baptist Historical Society Series. If you are interested in learning more about the history of Baptists in Canada, take a few moments to explore the website, and feel free to contact us so that we can answer any questions that you may have.
