About Our Content
We never know the depth or width of the roots of an old tree, until we start digging.
For Canada, those Christian roots go as deep as the early years of exploration and discovery. They extend to the Reformation in Europe. They spread further by colonization through both Britain and France. They continued to spread with the establishment of The Fur Trade, and other economic activities, and eventually gave birth to the Dominion of Canada.
Join us on an exciting journey of exploration and discovery. Read our blogs which give insights to the chronological development of our Dominion.

But the war was won and Canada (as New France) was relegated to the North of the Great Lakes.

Our mission is to Educate, Equip and Empower Christian Canadians with the knowledge of our Christians roots, and its significance in the founding and development of the country.
We hope that this generation will tell the next generation about their forebears who laid a solid Christian foundation for the Canada they know and love today.
