The Upper Canadian Travelling Mission Fund was established in 1834 by the new Bishop of Quebec, the Rt. Rev. Charles James Stewart (1775-1837), to convert and civilize the "Indians" and provide spiritual aid to the remote and destitute settlers in Upper Canada using district Travelling Missionaries. Reports and letters from the travelling missionaries were published to convince British Christians to support the cause.
