This chapter describes the quite different history of the churches in Canada. During the 18th century, the struggle between Catholic France and Protestant Britain for political control of Canada was decisively settled in favour of the latter. The dramatic events of the period 1720–1800 are of decisive importance for understanding Canadian religious history. The problems of a colonial Catholic establishment are first introduced. It then explores the French Catholicism under the British. In addition, description on the growth of Protestantism in the Maritime Provinces, and Protestant beginnings in Quebec and Ontario is provided.
