Located in the northern part of North America, Canada extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and northwards into the Arctic Ocean. It is the world’s second-largest country by total area. Canada is sparsely populated, with the majority of its land being covered by forest and tundra as well as the impressive Rocky Mountains.

Mothers’ Union has been active in Canada for 130 years and now has approximately 400 members. A very strong prayer life is central to all they do. Although vast distances mean that meeting together regularly is difficult, when members do get together at meetings, rallies and conferences, there is an immense feeling of belonging and being bound together in prayer and purpose.

Mothers’ Union members in Canada are involved in a wide range of community activities including:

  • Marriage preparation
  • Baptism support
  • Soup kitchens
  • Supporting Mission to Seafarers
  • Northern Clergy Families Fund. 
  • Parenting Programme
  • Christmas shoeboxes for the homeless
  • Campaigning against gender based violence
