History

The Canada District of the American Lutheran Church was officially organized in 1908 within the Ohio Synod. Following a fire at the Trinity Lutheran Church of the Manitoba Synod, members the congregation appealed to the President of the Minnesota District of the Ohio Synod for a pastor. The call was answered in 1905 by a pastor from the Ohio Synod, which was subsequently followed by multiple petitions from Lemberg, Regina, Strassburg, Kipling and Saskatchewan. The Ohio Synod continued to supply the region with pastors, which eventually led to the establishment of the Canada District of the Ohio Synod in 1908. In 1930, the Ohio Synod merged with the Iowa and Buffalo Synods from the American Lutheran Church, and took on the name of the ALC. In 1960, the Canada District of the American Lutheran Church received a charter from the Parliament of Canada, under the name- the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Canada. In 1967, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Canada gained its independence from the American Lutheran Church, becoming the first autonomous Lutheran body in Canada.
