Church Of England
The first Anglican church in what is now Canada was
built at Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1750, when Cornwallis was governor of
the province. The first see was established in 1787. Dr. Charles Inglis
as bishop of Nova Scotia had charge of the whole of British North
America. The first service held in Quebec was in the Ursuline Convent,
September, 1759. The first Anglican bishop of the diocese of Quebec was
Dr. Mountain, appointed in 1793; and in 1839 Dr. John Strachan became
first bishop of Toronto. As population grew, the eastern dioceses were
subdivided into nine. The see of Rupert's Land, founded 1849, was
subsequently divided into Rupert's Land, Moosonee, Saskatchewan,
Calgary, Mackenzie River, Qu'Appelle, Athabaska, Keewatin, and Selkirk.
In 1859 was established the see of British Columbia, divided later into
New Westminster and Caledonia. In 1857 the Church of England Synod was
legally constituted; and after that year bishops were elected by the
votes of clergy and laity in Canada. The first Church Congress was held,
1883. The General Synod of the Church in the Dominion was established,
1893, and the metropolitans of Canada and Rupert's Land were made
archbishops, the first of whom were Dr. J.T. Lewis and Dr. R. Machray.
