Like several other religious denominations in Canada,
it had its origin in Nova Scotia. Some Baptists were living in Lunenburg
as early as 1753. In 1800 the first Baptist Association was formed at
Granville, Nova Scotia, and by 1850 there were Baptist Associations in
many parts of the province. In 1828 the Nova Scotia Baptist Educational
Society was established. The first church was built in Montreal, 1830;
and in 1834 the Baptist Seminary of New Brunswick was founded at
Fredericton. In 1852 the Baptist Missionary Society of Canada was
established. Since then the Baptists have grown rapidly in all the
provinces, and several Baptist colleges and institutions have been
established, notably Acadia and McMaster Universities (q.v.). The
Baptist Church was organized in British Columbia in 1877. =Index=: (Wilmot era)
