Mennonite Church Canada's more that 200 congregations and over 32,000 baptized members represent a cross-section of Canadians. Mennonites first came to Canada in 1786, followed by four successive waves from Europe over the next 150 years. In the years that followed brothers and sisters from all parts of the globe and the indigenous people of Canada enriched our membership.

The formation of Mennonite Church Canada in 1999/2000 was the culmination of a process that began in July, 1989 with the decision of two North American church bodies – the Mennonite Church (MC) and General Conference Mennonite Church (GC) – to explore integration. Discussions included the Conference of Mennonites in Canada (CMC), which had congregational and conference ties to both the MC and GC bodies.
