Welcome to the web site of the Canadian Quaker Archives and Library, your gateway to the history of Quakers in Canada.
Here you will find information about the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Canada from the 1700’s onwards. You will find indexes to our collection, historic and current as well as transcriptions of the early records of Quaker Meetings.
Genealogists will also find our early Quaker records on www.ancestry.ca.
The Canadian Quaker Genealogical Index contains over 12000 names of people found in the Quaker minute books in Canada up to 1900. This includes births, deaths, marriages and membership transfers.
More transcriptions, newsletters and information on Canadian Quakers may also be found on the website of the Canadian Friends Historical Association.
The Canadian Quaker Archives welcomes inquiries from researchers and genealogists. The part-time Archivist will answer as soon as possible. Visits are also welcome by appointment.
The Archives and Library are located at Pickering College in Newmarket, Ontario.
