Administrative History
The Church of England Deaconess and Missionary Training House was established in 1890 as a residential school to prepare women workers for Deaconess and missionary service. In 1947 the name was changed to the Anglican Women's Training College (AWTC). Anglican women from all over Canada came to Toronto to train for work in Christian Education in parishes, medical and teaching services overseas, Indian and Eskimo Residential Schools and reserves, Bishop's Messengers in western Canada, Sunday School by Post and Radio, youth and social work. The Woman's Auxiliary recruits were sent to the AWTC for missionary training for a year or less before being sent out. This was different from the three year diploma program offered to AWTC students. In 1969, the AWTC merged with the United Church's Covenent College to become the Centre for Christian Studies using the former AWTC building on Charles Street, Toronto. In 1997, the building in Toronto was sold and a decision was made to discontinue the traditional residential program in favour of the community based program and to relocate the administrative offices to Winnipeg. In July, 1998, CCS officially moved.

Administrative History
The Canadian Church Missionary Association was founded in 1894 in connection with the Church Missionary Society of England (C.M.S). Formed by members of the Church of England in Canada, its purpose was to send out Canadian missionaries to convert the non-Christian world. Some of their first missionaries went to Japan. In 1895, the Association was amalgamated with the Wycliffe Missions. The Association was to act in Canada on behalf of the Church Missionary Society to receive and examine candidates for service as well as to promote its cause within the Canadian Church. In 1902, the Association's full name of "Canadian Church Missionary Association in Connection with the Church Missionary Society" was abbreviated to "Canadian Church Missionary Society" (C.C.M.S). In the same year, the Missionary Society of the Church of England in Canada (M.S.C.C.) was formed. Shortly thereafter, the C.C.M.S. pledged its loyalty to this new missionary society with the intent of forming one great missionary society for the whole of Canada.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of original annual report booklets, informational pamphlets, circular letters, correspondence and a photograph of a group of C.C.M.S. missionaries with their Japanese pupils.
