Administrative History
The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society of the Church of England in Canada was formed by Canon XIX of the Provincial Synod of the Ecclesiastical Province of Canada, September, 1883. The books were closed in 1902 when it amalgamated with the Canada Church Missionary Association, into the Missionary Society of the Church of England in Canada (MSCC) created by the General Synod in 1902.
Dr. C.H. Mockridge, General Secretary, and J.J. Mason, General Treasurer, were the chief administrative officers of the DFMS until 1893 when the full-time position of Secretary-Treasurer was created, in which Dr. Mockridge served until December 1896. From 1897 to 1901, Canon A. Spencer served as Honorary Secretary. In 1901, Canon Grout took over as acting Secretary to oversee the transfer of the administration of the missions to the MSCC. Mr. C.A. Eliot served the DFMS as Honorary Treasurer, 1897-1902, and continued as Treaurer with the MSCC.
The Woman's Auxliary, formed in Ottawa in April 1885, co-operated with the DFMS. The DFMS supplied funds to a number of missions in several Canadian dioceses and to a number of foreign missionaries, particularly in Japan. At first administration was handled through the British societies, but gradually the Canadian Missions became self-supporting by 1899. Money was raised in a number of annual campaigns: the Epiphany and Ascensiontide Appeals and the Children's Lenten Letter.

Administrative History
The Missionary Society of the Church of England in Canada (MSCC) was formed in September 1902 by the General Synod. The Society was created for the general missionary work of the Church and aimed to bring all members of the Church into the field of action by making them members of the Society. The work of the Society was under the charge of the Board of Missions, consisting of all members of the General Synod. The executive work of the Board of Missions was done by the Board of Management composed of the Bishops, two clergy and two laymen elected by each diocese. Administratively, the MSCC was run by a General Secretary who guided the Field Secretary and various committees in their work. Its last General Secretary resigned in 1969. The MSCC Board of Management still exists under Canon VII, convenes during General Synod, and produces financial statements because of ongoing MSCC legacies and trusts.
The work of the MSCC consisted of domestic and foreign missions. In Canada the work included assisting missionary dioceses, Indian and Eskimo work, Columbia Coast Mission, Church Camp Missions, Jewish Missions, Japanese Missions, Immigration chaplaincies, white settlers missions, and Indian Residential Schools. Foreign missions included church, medical, and education work in Japan, China, India, Palestine (Jerusalem), and Egypt.
The forerunners of the MSCC were the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (1883-1902) and the Canadian Church Missionary Society (1894-1903), both of whom were already supporting domestic and foreign missionaries. By the side of the DFMS stood the Woman's Auxiliary (1885-1966), organized in 1885 for the purpose of enlisting the women in the missionary effort of the Church. When the MSCC was formed it became the Woman's Auxiliary to the MSCC.
