The Christian churches in Canada had their beginnings in the early part of the 19th century, through the immigration of members of the Scottish Baptist Church from Scotland and of the Christian churches in the USA. These two movements united at the end of the 1840s to form the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada. A western Canada region was formed early in the 20th century and a national structure in 1922. The church officially functions as one of the regions of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada (see Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) USA).
