In 1817 the "Fountainhill" chapel was built of logs at the corner of Dundas St. and Cawthra Rd. to serve Protestant Christians, mainly of the Methodist, Presbyterian, and Anglican denominations. In 1837, this was replaced by a larger stone chapel which still stands.

At the same time the Anglican congregation formally organized as Christ Church, Sydenham. They continued to share space in what later became known as Dixie Union Chapel, and were serviced by the Rector of St. Peter's Erindale over the following years. In 1870, construction of St. John the Baptist, Dixie, began on the adjoining lot to the east.

Until 1951, St. John's and St. Peter's continued to share the sevices of the same rector. In 1910, the first of subsequent land purchases was made to enlarge the cemetery lands. This continued through to 1961, giving us about 12 Acres. Following World War I, additional space requirements led to the building of the basement in 1922. Then in June 1924 the church was struck by lightning and was completely destroyed.

The congregation quickly moved to rebuild, and the new edifice was dedicated on December 20, 1925. In 1938 the drive shed from the horse and buggy era to the north of the church, was sold. In 1951, the long desired separation of St. Peter's Erindale and St. John the Baptist - Dixie, took place. In 1954 the church hall was built to accomodate the 350 Sunday School pupils.

A new Rectory was built in 1984 in the northeast corner of the cemetery, followed by the construction of a Crematorium in 1990. September 15, 2002 marked the dedication of the expanded facilities of St. John's, by the Rt. Rev. Ann Tottenham, Bishop of the Credit Valley.

The addition made the Church wholly accessible to all with disabilities or in wheelchairs, provided improved washroom facilities, new offices and meeting rooms. With the dedication of the beautiful new addition, we continue our history of building at St. John's.

Описание для места - Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.

While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.

On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..

When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?

But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).

Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.

Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).

But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore.

"It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, Vancouver
