The presence of Mennonites in the greater Toronto region dates from the early years of the nineteenth century. Shortly after Mennonite settlement began in the Waterloo area this flow of emigrants from the United States was briefly diverted to the Markham area, north of the settlement of York—now Toronto.

In 1907, a Mennonite mission was established in a neighbourhood at Eastern Ave. and Cherry Street in Toronto. This mission was soon relocated to Danforth Ave east of Woodbine Ave., where today is is Danforth Mennonite Church.

There are now fourteen Mennonite congregations in and around Toronto. The languages of worship and the character of the services reflect the multifaceted nature of this urban setting. Congregations worship in Chinese – Cantonese and Mandarin, Spanish, Korean, Laotian, and English.

Also, there are seventeen Mennonite service ministries. These work among people in low income housing, with youth, with seniors, with refugees, and with immigrants, and are challenged by the many needs that arise in and around the city.

The combined membership of these churches is approximately 1,250 active members.
