The Salvation Army began its work in Canada in 1882, just fifteen years after Confederation. By July that year, The Salvation Army in London, Ontario, had grabbed the attention of the press. The success of the Army was remarkable and its growth was amazingly rapid.
Since opening its doors in Canada, The Salvation Army has served millions of people who have come to them in their hour of need.
Today, across Canada, in more than 400 communities, The Salvation Army continues to meet the challenges of local situations. Battles against hunger, poverty, loneliness and injustice give strong indication that Salvation Army services will be required for years to come.
