Name of creator
The Canadian Yearly Meeting is an administrative body of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), formed in 1955 through the unification of three Quaker records committees: the Canada Yearly Meeting (Orthodox), Canada Yearly Meeting (Conservative), and Genessee Yearly Meeting (Hicksite).
Scope and content
Fonds consists of records of the Canadian Yearly Meeting of the Society of Friends (Quakers), its constituent meetings, its standing committees, and other related bodies which entrusted their records to its care between 1955 and 1974. This includes records from the three Yearly Meetings that united in 1955 to become Canadian Yearly Meeting.
An inventory for the original records was prepared by the University of Western Ontario Regional History Collection in 1971, and reference codes were assigned. These reference codes are provided here in brackets next to the title, for the use of researchers who may wish to correlate published references to the microfilm and to the originals. In the University of Western Ontario reference codes, C identifies records of Conservative Friends, O identifies Orthodox records, and H identifies Genessee (Hicksite) records.
Immediate source of acquisition
These records were microfilmed by the Archives of Ontario at the request of the Canadian Friends Historical Association.
