This encyclopedia recounts the stories of Canadian Christian leaders from the time of Confederation (1867) to 2017 (the 150th anniversary of Confederation).


Those stories will be drawn from seven sectors:

church/ministry
education
business/philanthropy
media
entertainment/arts
health care/family
government/politics.
