Canadian Baptist Women of Ontario and Quebec



Our Story

God asks each of us to reach out and share his love.

CBWOQ began when the hearts of Ontario and Quebec women were set on fire to do whatever they could to bring health, education, justice, and the Gospel (word+ deed) to the poor and downtrodden women and girls of India.

And when we look at what God is calling us to do today,we look, as we did over 138 years ago, at the spiritual, social, and material needs of women in our day: trafficked women globally, First Nations women nationally, or spiritually adrift women locally, and pray that God would set us on fire to respond, just as He ignited a movement among our foremothers in response to the needs of women in their day.

Women called to authentic experience of God and intimate connection to mission.
