Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec (CBOQ) – the oldest union of Baptist churches in central Canada.

The Convention supports and enables our member Churches to be healthy, mission-minded congregations as we serve God together.

The Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec family of churches is a group of approximately 360 churches working together to build Christ’s kingdom. We share the conviction that all people can know God directly through Jesus Christ, and that God calls all people to reconciliation. This century-old commitment which created CBOQ is demonstrated in the diversity in worship and service.

In our own provinces we help plant churches, train leaders, send missionaries, feed the hungry, and touch people in their circumstances. Along with Canadian Baptists in other regions of Canada, we work internationally as Canadian Baptist Ministries.
